Back to Kids' Voices Marissa

My name is Marissa and I have had diabetes for 29 years. I was diagnosed when I was 2, got a pump when I was 11, got a sensor when I was 20, and they both make my life much easier!

I work in diabetes research, am married to Adam, and have a wonderful son and daughter At CWD conferences, I am one of the teen group leaders.

I also love to travel, practice my Spanish, salsa dance, and play with our dog, Baxter.
