Ginger Vieira

December 31st, 2010  |  Published in About, Ginger  |  1 Comment

I’ve lived with type 1 diabetes and celiac disease since 1999. As a certified cognitive coach and personal trainer, I work with people across the country in diabetes and celiac disease. With a B.S. in Professional Writing from Champlain College, I work regularly as a freelance writer and self-published author of “Emotional Eating with Diabetes” and “Your Diabetes Science Experiment.”  My training in cognitive coaching is based on the science of the brain, how we form habits, and a natural conversational process that helps us create new habits. Today, I’m an active member of the Diabetes Advocates, and I’m known in the Diabetes Online Community for my various work as health coach, video blogger, and author.

Below, you’ll find some of my past and present work and speaking events:
