Carmelita Jimenez, RN, BSN,CDE

Certified Diabetes Educator 

I am so happy to join the Fit4D team! For me, there is nothing more rewarding than to help people get their diabetes under control . With the epidemic of diabetes and prediabetes, it is so wonderful to find a company that matches the heartfelt care and passion that I feel for helping this population.

Carmelita is a Registered Nurse and Certified Diabetes Educator. She has over 25 years of experience working in the field of diabetes. Her mother (a nurse herself) developed diabetes when Carmelita was a teenager. The issues that her mother experienced when learning to manage diabetes left a great impression on Carmelita. Once she completed nursing school, she realized that her calling was to help patients with diabetes, especially the Hispanic population. She is sympathetic to the difficulties that the Spanish-speaking population faces when learning to manage their diabetes, including language and cultural barriers. 

Carmelita has worked in various settings including inpatient (insulin, meter and diabetes management skills), outpatient (gestational pregnancy, 1:1 diabetes management skills, teaching diabetes management classes), community outreach (health fairs), Journey for Control Map programs, church ministry (guest speaker). She has 5 years of experience with telephone outreach helping patients meet their A1C goals.
