I can’t say enough good things about Mary Lucas. She is incredibly sweet, kind, genuine, wise beyond her years, and just an overall shining light in our diabetes community. It was a real pleasure getting to learn her story during our interview, and I think you will love getting to know her better too!
Mary was diagnosed with Type 1 in 1998 at the age of seven, and after 17 years with diabetes, she still approaches each day with a smile and a sunny outlook. She attended Parsons the New School for Design in New York where she studied fashion design, with a focus in Childrenswear.
Now in her role as Community Partners + Programs Manager at Beyond Type 1, Mary loves connecting and sharing stories, tips and tricks with other people with diabetes. She is passionate about thriving with T1D, finding a cure, growing Beyond Type 1, and her little French Bulldog Lola 🙂
