She holds certification in diabetes technologies including the Medtronic Hybrid Closed Loop Pump, Tandem TSlim Basal IQ technology, Yposomed Insulin Pump as well as Dexcom and Medtronic continuous glucose monitoring.
Janet was a founding staff member of the Qld Diabetes Centre at the Mater Hospital in Brisbane. She played an integral role in the delivery of the Insulin Pump Service and insulin stabilisation service. She attended King's College in London and Sheffield University, U.K. in 2004, as part of the original Australian team to be trained in the DAFNE (Dose Adjustment For Normal Eating Program).
Janet believes that all people with diabetes should have access to the highest quality care, including access to life-saving technology. She believes that diabetes self-management education (learning to manage your own diabetes) is the best discovery since insulin itself.
