Sabrina Gardner, Founder & CEO

I am a humanitarian, founder, advocate, entrepreneur, mother, friend author and creator. Parent of three children, one who struggles daily with type 1 juvenile diabetes for 18.5 years and another who struggles with adhd and addiction.  My goal is to create the first school/academy in U.S. history, which can be utilized in existing schools, homes and communities around the globe via technology, retail, real-estate, theater, stage/play and mobile fashion. Making a difference in the lives of others by improving their overall health on a daily basis with diabetes and other medical health issues.  Educating families and communities in prevention, awareness, and control of chronic disease which will induce longevity.  Introducing a unique learning environment through health and education learning initiatives, while breeding support systems for the entire family as a unit as well as the community; for those affected by chronic disease or looking for healthier lifestyle changes.  To educate and promote health, wellness, awareness with prevention methods to assist in combating chronic disease as well as the trials and complications associated with chronic disease.
