Teresa is a Registered Pharmacist and an award-winning Credentialled Diabetes Educator. She has been practising at High Wycombe Pharmacy as a pharmacist and Diabetes Educator for over 5 years. Teresa is currently the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia WA Branch President and represents pharmacist diabetes educators on the ADEA Clinical committee, WA Health Network Endocrine Executive advisory group and the Curtin University Diabetes Education Course review advisory committee. She has taken on these roles as she would like to offer her input into the direction of diabetes caretaker roles in the future to ensure it is accessible, affordable and of a high standard for all people living with diabetes.

​Teresa is passionate about making living with diabetes as less stressful as possible and providing people with the most up to date technology. She has been working in community pharmacy and chose to specialise in the field of diabetes after personally watching many members of her family live with various forms of diabetes and some eventually succumbing to the complications of diabetes. She has worked with people living with both type 1 diabetes and 2 diabetes. As a pharmacist, Teresa is able to provide extra services such as medication review, reconciliation and counselling on the correct use of medications. She has been trained in both the Living with Diabetes and DESMOND group education programs.

Since commencing private practice Teresa has noticed a gap in the community for easily accessible diabetes education services for people living with type 1 diabetes, particularly young adults. With the constantly changing world of diabetes technology she passionately believes it is important that we are offering the most advanced devices, and are providing up to date information to people, to ensure living with type 1 diabetes is as comfortable as possible while we wait for a cure. She strongly believes diabetes education is changing to consider the psychosocial impact, as well as physical impact, diabetes has on a person. It no longer follows the model of focusing only on blood glucose levels and numbers but instead we are part of the person’s support team helping them achieve the goals they set.

Perth Diabetes Care (now PDC Health Hub) was established to provide a full support team for people living with diabetes in the primary care environment outside of what currently exists.
