Type One Geologist



Never Let Your Disability Hinder Your Experiences!!

Hello, I’m Amanda!

I was diagnosed with Type One Diabetes (T1D) on 4 Dec. 2002 at the ripe age of 5. Type one diabetes is one of the things on my set-back list, but I never let that take precedence over my desire to flourish outwardly.

I created this space to share my stories and personal experiences of doing geologic field research, adventuring, and working in the outdoor field to inspire others with disabilities, especially autoimmune diseases, to get outside in whatever way fits our needs.

I graduated from Northland College in Ashland, WI with BS in Geology and am hoping to pursue a career that encompasses volcanology and communicating with visitors in park settings… maybe some trail work.. maybe some interpretation… maybe some field research… I’m open to trying it all!

I’m so glad you stopped by my blog and hope you feel inspired to share your story and your unique voice.
