Daniella Knell is an an allergy educator, community advocate and mom of two children managing food, animal, medicinal and seasonal allergies. She provides adult and children's allergy awareness classes, national telephone workshops, product videos and one-on-one consulting.
Her passion is in the classroom and her goal is to 'alleviate food allergy fears one classroom at a time' through a positive, uplifting and partnering approach. The strong support networks this provides are invaluable.
Her personal exposure to allergies involved her yearly childhood run-ins with poison ivy.
With this limited exposure, she 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." Since that time, allergies including soy, eggs, fish, shellfish, avocado, kiwi, bananas, peanuts and tree nuts have floated in and out of her food allergy world.
From that moment forward, her dedicated passion has been to take the fear out of managing food allergies through increased education and a motivational attitude.
HER COMMUNITY and NATIONAL INVOLVEMENT
Since 2007, she have been presenting Kids Education Classes, Adult Education Classes and offering One-on-one Consulting. You can find her regularly presenting classes at St. Alphonsus Hospital Family Center.
Seeing the need for simply stated labels to attach to products in our pantries and on snack boxes at school, she designed and trademarked her OWN S.A.F.E. Food Allergy Labels. They have been mentioned and promoted on Allergic Living - Amazing Life Hacks for Allergies , YoDish - Back To School Favorites and are sold by her Canadian colleague and business associate, Allergic Solution .
In 2015 I had the honor of being a speaker at the 2nd Annual FAACT Teen Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. I have been a SunButter Ambassador and Blogger since 2013 and HOPE you find my positive attitude contagious~
