Welcome CDN Summer Intern Brett!

Brett Sooy

My name is Brett Sooy and I am a summer intern at CDN! I am very excited to work alongside some great people who are just as passionate as I am when it comes to diabetes. Originally, I am from Chagrin Falls, Ohio which is thirty minutes east of Cleveland. This summer I am living in the Boston area at Endicott College where I will be a rising senior earning my degree in Business Management with a focus in Marketing.

I was diagnosed pretty late with T1D as I was 17 and had just started my senior year of high school. At first my diagnosis was not something I was too thrilled about as one could imagine, but as the years have gone by it has made me into who I am today and I wouldn’t change a thing! It has allowed me to help educate people to have a better understanding of what T1D truly is!

In my free time I enjoy hanging out with friends and family, hanging out on the beach, watching Netflix and any sports. I am part of the men’s lacrosse team at Endicott which is something I absolutely love, as I have been playing the game since I was in the fifth grade. I couldn’t imagine not being apart of such a great group of young men!
