Cynthia Ayris Kemp is a research coordinator for diabetes studies at the University of Florida. Her younger son’s diagnosis of type 1 diabetes was the catalyst behind her shift from management consulting to a diabetes-focused career. She applies her business experience and marketing skills to her passions of raising awareness of the disease and creating a culture of participation in research studies. In addition to her son, three extended family members also live with type 1 diabetes and several more with type 2 diabetes. Cynthia feels a personal obligation to contribute to a cure and, until then, improve the lives of those living with diabetes.
She holds a BS in Finance from Florida State University and an MBA with dual concentrations of Finance and Organization Design from Indiana University. Cynthia and her husband reside in Sarasota, Florida, and love following the adventures of their two college-aged sons.
