Meet Kirsty

Consultant, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Credentialled Diabetes Educator

We are extremely lucky to have Kirsty Guilfoyle on the team as a Credentialled Diabetes Educator. Based in Tamworth, she also helps people in Moree, Narrabri and Armidale to manage their diabetes and live life to the fullest.

Kirsty has been specialising in diabetes care and management for almost a decade. Prior to becoming a consultant with Macintyre Health, she worked at Medtronic – a global leader in diabetes devices like insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitoring – for six years. She has also worked as a registered nurse in numerous locations including St Vincent’s, Princess Alexandra and The Mater Hospital, Brisbane.

Given her background at Medtronic, Kirsty has invaluable knowledge about the technologies that help those living with diabetes.

“Technology is working wonders to help people living with diabetes to manage their condition and reduce the risk of long-term complications. It is wonderful to be able to share my knowledge with regional Australians.”
