Welcome to the team…
Annette Valle, RN, BSN, CDE
Director of Spanish Services
Integrated Diabetes Services is muy emocionado to announce the addition of Annette Valle to our clinical team.
Annette Valle provides a full range of basic and advanced diabetes self-management education and glucose regulation services for Spanish and English-speaking patients. Her passion for helping others began soon after she was diagnosed with Type-1 diabetes at age 13, 12 years after her father was diagnosed. Blood sugar competitions and sharing the challenges of living day-to-day with diabetes brought her very close to her dad and helped her see the bright side of an otherwise gloomy condition.
Annette earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from Southern Utah University. She is a Certified Diabetes Educator and Certified Medical Interpreter in the Spanish language. She is also a Certified Insulin Pump trainer and has expertise with all models of continuous glucose monitors and hybrid closed loop systems.
Annette developed her Spanish language skills while serving on a mission for her church. She met her husband, Angel, while traveling abroad in El Salvador. Rumor has it that he was captivated by both her beauty and the cookies she carried for treating her low blood sugars.
She lives near Salt Lake City, Utah with her husband and two boys, Ruben and Olie, with a little girl expected in the spring of 2019. In her spare time she enjoys training for distance open-water swim races, triathlons, spending time in the Utah mountains, sewing, and home improvement projects.
