Working in communications and content strategy for more than a decade across for- and non-profit companies, Lala has been in the diabetes non-profit space for the past six years. A bit of a nomad, she grew up primarily bouncing between Hawaii and Washington state and graduated from the University of Miami in Florida with a communications degree focused in advertising. She is a published non-fiction author who is currently trying to teach herself how to write fiction. You can usually find her reading, preferably on a beach. She has lived with diabetes since 1997.
