Nick Barbara and Glenis Philip-Barbara

Nick and Glenis share their story

Nick and Glenis have been married for 25 years and are proud parents of 7 grown up children.

Nick is a former Staff Sergeant in the NZ Army and now works as a home handyman. Glenis was a senior public servant and now works as a management consultant and executive coach.

They started the EDGE (End Diabetes Gisborne East coast) trial in August 2017 and have reformed their lifestyle for good as a result of what they have learned. Nick has reversed his diabetes and Glenis has reduced her cholesterol to healthy levels.

As grandparents in waiting they are keen to hang around for many more years to come and enjoy life in Tairāwhiti.
