Our Story

We founded Pump Peelz in 2011 to help people with diabetes live with more confidence by turning insecurities associated with wearing a medical device into a form of individual self-expression.

Shortly after I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, I found myself getting frustrated trying to conceal my insulin pump. I knew there had to be a better way.

Together with Scott, my boyfriend at the time and now husband, we decided to try and make a difference by creating fun products that would help kids and young adults living with the disease.

 PumpPeelz.com was born out of that mission.  

Our Mission

The Pump Peelz product was created through online collaboration with the diabetes community. Our goal is to help empower people with diabetes to express themselves and be proud of their ability to manage the disease.

Our only hope is that one day we can move on from this business because of a cure or better treatment for everyone. 

Our Vision

To become the source for highly personalized, fun, and artistic medical accessories for individuals, hospital systems, and care givers.
