Speaker Bio
Julie (Vinje) Jaworski married her high school sweetheart, Dan, in 1987. In those 33 years, she and Dan have raised two amazing children, Griffin (28) and Elsa (24). She is a soon to be grandmother and is beyond excited. She has been an educator and counselor at the elementary level since graduating from University of Minnesota, Moorhead in 1987. She is extremely passionate about educating all children.

Julie was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 1991 at the age of 26, before both Griffin and Elsa were born. She has never let diabetes slow her down with her goals in life. In thirty years of the disease, she has run 26 full marathons and completed 2 full Ironman. When Dan was diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment, she knew that he, too, would defy odds when dealing with a life altering course. Because that is what we aim to do.

Julie is excited to see how she and Dan will continue living life to its fullest with the Carpe Diem mentality.
