My name is Kinsey Ellis! I am Co-presidents with Ashley and am so

excited to co-lead Tufts PUMPD this year. I am a junior studying

Quantitative economics, mathematics, and entrepreneurship from

Morristown, NJ. I was diagnosed at the age of 5, and wear Tandem

and Dexcom. I am one of 5 people with Type 1 in my family,

including my mom, my uncle, my cousin, and my great aunt, so I

have loved creating a similar T1D community here at Tufts. Feel
