Women in leadership – Sarah Lee @Kaleido

Growing up in a one-parent household, I have from a young age been aware of the importance of self-reliance.

Ever since we’ve had to tell all our Kaleidoers to stop using their insulin pump, we’ve been working non-stop to get Kaleido back to them as soon as possible.

Nurses make the difference

Nurses make the difference

The day before I started my new life as an adolescent in high school, I got diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. So I didn’t just start my high school career with a backpack full of books, but also an extra piece of baggage called diabetes. For years I tried to get rid of that baggage, which meant it took me a long time to start accepting my diabetes. Eventually, with...

If you’ve got a question, you’d like to talk something through or you just want to say hey. There’s nothing we like more than a chat. Tell us a bit about you and we’ll whizz a note back as soon as we can!
