About the Author

Vanessa Messenger is a Mom, a Product Lead at Google, and considering she’s been a Type 1 Diabetic since 2010…she’s also a full-time pancreas! 


With her background in Psychology and Broadcast Communications, she’s always been impassioned by creating a connection with people through Storytelling. After receiving so much support and encouragement from the deep rooted community of “diabuddies”, she was determined to help create that same sense of belonging and connection for T1D kids through Teddy Talks.
