This Weeks Cartoon by Theresa L. Garnero, ARNP, CDE. Issue 320
Theresa L. Garnero got her start as a cartoonist by receiving rejection letters from Walt Disney when she was 8 years old. As the youngest of 7 children, raised in a humorous environment, it’s no wonder she aspired to make people laugh. Even comedians realize the seriousness of making a living, however, so she eventually went to college and found her passion: nursing.
She completed her Master of Science in Nursing degree, became a Certified Diabetes Educator and an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse, Board Certified in Advanced Diabetes Management. She is the current President of the California Central Coast Chapter of the American Association of Diabetes Educators. She has 18 years experience as a nurse, and recently took a new position as Director of Diabetes Services with Washington Hospital in Fremont, CA
