Hello hello! My name is Amanda and I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on 4 Dec 2002 at the age of 5. T1D has been a major component in my life, but I have done my best to not let it control my lifestyle.

Type One Geologist started out as my way of showcasing the amazing adventures I am able to go- either on my own time or through university geology courses- despite having this so called disability. This blog is evolving into an artistic medium in which I can convey my personal, intuitive message to not let diseases, disabilities or life’s set backs hinder experiences. I am here to promote self love, healthy, intuitive eating, and diabetic tips through my opportunities of adventure and in daily living.


I am currently attending Northland College in Ashland, WI for a BS in Geology as of Dec. 2019. Spring 2018, I took a gap semester to join American Conservation Experience and in fall 2018, I officially transferred to Northland.
