house mentor

Felice Guimont

RN CDE, has had a successful nursing career for over 27 years and has thrived with Type 1 Diabetes for over 43 years.

 

She is published in Diabetes Forecast, and has worked closely with the American Diabetes Association, and loves her role as an educator. She has dedicated her life to assisting others with the multitude of challenges of diabetes from a real life, personal perspective. Her sometimes intense, transparent approach to self management has yielded improved outcomes for many whom she's educated. Seeing firsthand the lack of accessibility to education and the need for others to realize the emotional complexity of diabetes, fueled her to participate in the Reversed show.

 

Surprisingly for her, she received better insight to her own health during the filming of season one. She believes that there's always something new to learn. Participating in Reversed helped her realize her own dreams of receiving all aspects of support that people with diabetes deserve while reinforcing the manageability of the condition.
