Hi, my name is Katherine. A lot of people call me Katie. I was diagnosed with what appeared to be Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA), a slow onset of type 1 diabetes, in January 2010. I’ve been insulin dependent as of November 2012 and am now categorized as type 1.

I live in Los Angeles and work in the food industry, promoting a sustainable food system one bite at a time. Outside of work, I love to cook, travel, spend time outdoors, and visit my lovely home state of Minnesota.

You can find me on Twitter or e-mail me at 1littleprick at Gmail dot com.
