Taja grew up in a small town in British Columbia, Canada, and was diagnosed with T1D at age 9. For the first 18 years of diagnosis, she tried to hide it, not wanting to be different.  She didn’t feel confident in her skin or how her body looked.

At 25, she discovered the “secret sauce” that helped her get and stay fit. Now, she helps other T1Ds achieve their fitness goals.
