The Decide And Conquer Bootcamp Is A 12 Week Group Coaching Program Built For Women With T1D By Women With T1D.
Up and down blood sugar numbers
Finding empowerment with your relationship to T1D
Lack of confidence in your insulin dosing
Doing your best but with daily stress and anxiety
Overwhelm-- you don’t know where to start to take control and operate more proactively
Feeling alone without support, understanding, and connection to people who get it
It's truly a game changer when you have tactical and emotional support, personalized guidance, and tools to feel confident as an individual, and as a T1D.
Which is why I created the Decide + Conquer Group Coaching Program. To help you, and other women just like you…
You're a woman on a mission to take control of her T1D
You have an open mind and heart, ready to prioritize yourself
You are craving accountability and community to help move you towards your goals
You have the desire and willingness to be better than you were the day before
You see the value in being surrounded by like minded people who get it
You know working on your mindset is just as important as working on the numbers
We work with you on everything from understanding your blood sugar patterns, knowing when and why to make changes, menstrual cycle resistance and sensitivity, tools to feel balanced with nutrition, relationship to self/family/work, energy maintenance and emotional regulation, weight and body image, relationship to food, nailing exercise blood sugar numbers, and transforming your mindset.
By applying for this program, you are saying that you are ready to make T1D a priority, and don't want to have to keep trying to do it alone.
and it’s not one you’re doing alone.
I started this group coaching program in 2018 with the mission of merging community and transformation together.
This holistic approach to diabetes management has been so transformative for my life and propelled me into everything you see today.
It helped me feel happier in my relationships, in my body, and what’s possible for my future- which is the best part. And it all started with leaning into a deeper relationship with myself.
Everyone’s journey is different, but the process that we’ve figured out works the same: feeling more empowered with your T1D requires you to have a specific combination of tactical work, emotional work, community, and the commitment to prioritize yourself in a way you haven’t been taught to.
The transformations of those who have come through this program speak for themselves. We're here to help, and it is my #1 goal to make you feel confident and empowered, in every part of your life.

Trista is a certified health coach with a huge passion for meeting the DCB women where they are. Her own journey with overcoming hormone imbalances, insulin resistance, and relationship with food inspires her work with clients every day.
Trista was born and raised in Vermont, where she developed an appreciation for the outdoors and healthy living. She has lived with Type 1 Diabetes for 26 years and credits her young diabetes confidence to the support she received from her T1D father.
Trista’s active childhood evolved into college athletics, traveling abroad, and interning for a women-owned business in Uganda. Her passion for school and learning led her to begin her career in education as a learning specialist.
Having been both a player and a coach; a student and an educator; and a coaching client of Lauren’s in 2017, Trista believes in the power of the coaching dynamic to help overcome challenges, create sustainable change, and infuse self-confidence and independence along the way.
Trista is also a certified yoga instructor and is currently in school working towards her NBHWC certification.
Stacy was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 37; by this time, she had already started a family and established a career path. She found that juggling a new diagnosis, advancing in her career, and raising her children was intensely difficult. In an effort to understand how to better manage her own T1D, she began studying nutrition.
After receiving a master’s degree, Stacy used her new education and her personal experience to start a small catering business, aimed at providing healthy meal alternatives for busy professionals.
She is a believer in the power of knowledge, community, and relationships. A graduate of the September 2020 Decide and Conquer Bootcamp, she is committed to the idea that we are better together than we are on our own. The DCB strengthened her belief that connection with coaches and fellow diabetics makes facing health challenges less overwhelming and provides the necessary encouragement we need as T1Ds to thrive.
Stacy is a Certified Health Coach with a B.A. in Communication Studies from the University of Kansas and an M.S. in Health and Nutrition Education from Hawthorn University. She is currently working towards her NBHWC.
So that you could connect with other women with T1D around the possibility of change.
So that you could feel guided and supported… throughout the entire process.

“In January of 2020 I had my most recent endocrinologist appointment and came out of it feeling very discouraged. My A1C had crept up by another 0.2 to 7.5, my highest since leaving college 4 years ago. I felt defeated and my endocrinologist didn't really give me any words of encouragement, rather focused on making some slight changes to my basals and sending me on my way. I remember driving home in the car crying as I felt lost.
No joke right as I was pulling into my driveway, Lauren called for my consultation. I cannot even tell you how investing in myself changed my life.
This program has the capability to make such an impact, and hence why I have recommended it to everyone I talk to.
This not only made an impact on my personal and diabetes life, but also my professional life as these are the types of conversations and skills I hope to develop in my patients as a nurse. Thus, I would 110% recommend this program to anyone and everyone.
Lauren and Jess will help challenge and coach you to become the best version of yourself and feel confident as a woman, an individual, and as a type 1.”
