I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of seventeen. At thirty-two, I was diagnosed with celiac disease. Understandably, both chronic conditions have been challenging and frustrating for me. But they’ve also been educational, and, over time, I have learned not only how to live with the conditions, but how to flourish in spite of them. I have a unique perspective that is supportive and encouraging, practical and helpful. I have previously served as the president of the Denver Metro Chapter of the Celiac Support Association and am a founder of the of the Incredible, Edible Gluten-Free Food Fair™. I currently reside in Golden with my husband, Jim.
