Brandi Messerly is our Utah facility manager. She is a type 1 diabetic and has been a Diabetes Relief patient more than a year. After two months of treatments, she realized this was her answer!

After many flights from Utah to Houston for treatment, she worked toward bringing this much-needed treatment and relief to Utah. She has an extensive background in sales, finance, and operational management, and is excited to be part of the Diabetes Relief family, bringing help to the many Utah diabetics.
Brandi and her husband, Justin, have been married for 23 years; they have five children and are expecting a grandchild.
