I am an allergy educator, community advocate and mom of two children managing food, animal, medicinal and seasonal allergies. I provide adult and children's allergy awareness classes, national telephone workshops, product videos and one-on-one consulting.
My goal is 'alleviate food allergy fears one classroom at a time' through a positive, uplifting and partnering approach. The strong support networks and community advocates this provides are invaluable.
My personal exposure to allergies involved my yearly childhood run-ins with poison ivy.
With this limited exposure, I was little prepared for the changes which came in 2003. Little did I know the impact dairy-based yogurt could have when smeared all over a tiny, innocent face. Hives were everywhere.
From that moment forward, my dedicated passion has been to take the fear out of managing food allergies through increased education and a motivational attitude.
At Smart Allergy~Friendly Education, my goal is to make your personal journey easier by realizing the vast resources available to you, such as:
- food and non-food products
- educational tools and ideas
- community building opportunities
I hope the path I have traveled will make your adventure easier, and that you find my blogs useful and educational.
