CDE of the Year (2018) in Queensland: Lynne McCleary

I would like to say that I had always wanted to be a diabetes educator or that I had a personal reason for becoming a diabetes educator but the truth of the matter is that, when I was working as a community health nurse at Narrabri NSW in 1994, the diabetes educator resigned and I was offered the position. I thought what the heck, this will be easy, how hard can this be ……. little did I know!

I moved to Toowoomba in 2003 and worked in a few different fields (non as a diabetes educator).

In 2007 I was re-credentialed and in 2015 became the inaugurator and coordinator of AH Diabetes (a private diabetes clinic). The people that inspire me every day are my clients and the people I work with. I am privileged to be allowed to be part of their lives.

I was asked to include something that I don’t think many people would know! This is hard, as I am pretty much an open book – what you see is what you get but there is one thing……… I have dyslexia. I know no difference, I am me and dyslexia is part of me. In some ways no different to diabetes. You just have to work with what you have!

Diabetes is a complex and sometimes difficult condition to manage, but with the right support and education, people with diabetes can achieve their goals.
