Hi there! Welcome to Sugar Free Shawn, where together we’ll learn how to live happy and well with Diabetes. As a patient, internationally known speaker and tireless advocate for those living with and caring for those with Diabetes, I’ll show you how to make small changes to your diet, lifestyle and thinking that will have a big impact on your day-to-day life. Diabetes is not our destiny. We can make a choice to let Diabetes take over our lives or we can choose to let joy be the order of the day. I choose joy. How about you? Are you ready to make a difference in your own life or in the lives of those you care about?
If you want to learn more about me, head on over here.
If you’re interested in hiring me to speak, contact me. I love people!
