In August 2009, Melanie Weiss had an inspiration for a product that would make tracking foods easier and faster. As she began developing her idea, it went through a number of stages and formats before evolving into SureCount. She dedicated herself to learning as much as possible about diabetes and carbohydrate foods and consulted with a number of experts in the field. The overwhelmingly positive feedback she received encouraged Melanie to turn SureCount into a reality.
With a Master’s in Health Administration from West Chester University in Pennsylvania, Melanie has worked with nonprofit organizations that promote healthy eating programs in school and helped rural farmers bring their farm-fresh products to urban communities. She has written about health and wellness issues for a variety of publications including the Journal of Nursing Education and Family, Safety and Health. She also has contributed to a textbook published by McGraw-Hill.
She loves to eat delicious, healthy food. Her interests include her family and growing an organic garden.
Melanie wishes to acknowledge the guidance provided by Merle Shapera, MS, RD, CDE, a registered dietitian with over 20 years of clinical diabetes education experience.
