“I’m passionate about making diabetes easy to understand and manage.”
As a visual learner, Amanda Fryer of Driving Diabetes appreciates simple, colorful content over pages of words. So when she learned of the lack of resources available to the increasing number of people developing Type 2 diabetes, Amanda was determined to design useful content for them.
With over 25 years of experience in diabetes education, Amanda is more than well equipped to do so. As a registered nurse (RN) and Credentialed Diabetes Educator (CDE), she has spoken at multiple nursing conferences and developed learning resources. Amanda explains, “I’m passionate about making diabetes easy to understand and manage.”
In May 2019, Amanda began Driving Diabetes together with her business partner, Dietitian-CDE Helen Jackson. Now at Driving Diabetes, they help people with Type 2 diabetes learn how to self-manage their condition and live the quality of life they deserve through their book Get Smart with Type 2 Diabetes and upcoming Online Diabetes Centre.
Outside of enjoying the flexibility of running her own business, Amanda also likes reading, gardening, and hearing others’ stories. Additionally, she loves the ‘tribe’ of women she has found since joining the HerBusiness Network Community. Not only does she have access to an endless supply of resources, but also an incredible support system. And since participating in the Mastermind Experience, Amanda can’t wait to strategically grow Driving Diabetes even more.
