Employee: Carol Holten
“My journey with the American Diabetes Association began in 1986 after my daughter Katy was diagnosed at 6 years old with type 1 diabetes. I wanted to help my little girl live with this disease any way I could so I started volunteering for ADA in the Minnesota Area office as a facilitator for a Diabetes Support Group for parents of school – age children. I also raised money for diabetes research as a volunteer with the Gift of Hope Program for over 20 years. Katy is the reason I am dedicated to help Stop Diabetes.
I joined the ADA staff in 2004 so I am celebrating my 10 year anniversary this year. I have the pleasure of working on Camp Needlepoint & Daypoint our Minnesota camps, and Camp Sioux in North Dakota. I also work on our Diabetes Expo and support other ADA programs.
When I am not working, I love to travel and spend time with family and friends, including my four grandchildren.” -Carol
Thanks for all you do, Carol!
