Daniella Knell is a public speaker, allergy educator, community advocate and mom of two children managing food, animal, medicinal and seasonal allergies. Her allergy advocacy has included providing adult and children's allergy awareness classes, national telephone workshops, product videos and one-on-one consulting. She has spoken at local FARE media events, and was honored in 2015 to be a lead speaker at the 2nd Annual FAACT Teen Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
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.
Her personal exposure to allergies involved her yearly childhood run-ins with poison ivy.
With this limited exposure, she was little prepared for the life changing events which began 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 and bananas, have floated in and out of her food allergy world. The scariest and most difficult challenges have been helping a child to manage the fear of anaphylaxis to peanuts and tree nuts.
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. Whether at local schools, events or at national conferences, she loves publicly inspiring others to live positively with food allergies.
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 .
She has been a SunButter Ambassador and Blogger since 2013 and HOPES you find her positive attitude contagious~
