My name is Ginger Vieira, and I am passionate about helping people with diabetes and other chronic illnesses live full lives! I live with type 1 diabetes, celiac disease, hypothyroidism, and fibromyalgia. These conditions have never stopped me from living a full, active, energetic, and busy life!

Learning how to thrive despite the challenges of my chronic illnesses is something I strive to help others learn how to do, too.

Today, I am the Associate Director of Communications at T1D Exchange. T1D Exchange works to improve care and quality of life for people with type 1 diabetes through research that identifies critical problems or challenges. Learn more about T1D Exchange’s mission and how to participate from home in research here.

Here's the links to all Gingers contact info.

My background includes a B.S. in Professional Writing from Champlain College and certifications in cognitive coaching, Ashtanga Yoga, and personal training. Back in the day, I set 15 records in drug-free amateur powerlifting with record lifts of 190 lb. bench press, 265 lb. squat, and a 300 lb. deadlift. (You can find old competition videos on YouTube!) No more heavy lifting for me these days, but you will find me using most of my free-time jumping rope, lifting light weights, walking my dog with my handsome fella, sprinting up and down the sidewalk, and scootering with my kiddos in empty parking lots.

Today, I am a mother of two little ladies, living in Vermont with my handsome fella and the world’s most loyal pups, Petey and Wilma.
