After Thoughts: Abby Bayer
Ever heard of “Abby the Alcohol Swab“? Listen to the show, and you’ll hear all about how Abby found her super powers…
With a family history of nursing, great experiences helping kids at Clara Barton Diabetes Camp, and inspiration from her incredible CDE, Abby decided she wanted to become a CDE and help people live better with diabetes.
She went to school and got her credentials as a registered nurse. Then she recently landed a job with an outpatient center at a diabetes clinic, which will count towards both requirements for the CDE exam (2 years of professional practice experience and 1000 hours of diabetes self management education).
We talked with Abby about blogging, and how she got started working with Kerri.
We heard about Abby giving her nurse shots during her diagnosis hospital stay, which we all agreed was incredibly special of that nurse.
We had a bunch of fun with the questions from the chat, designed to be sung to the tune of “The 12 Days of Christmas”, and we were all very impressed with the witty quips the DOC came up with on Wednesday nights.
The show was a lot of fun, and I hope you’ll share some time with us and check it out.
