Hi there, I’m Elyse. I am a Colorado Native fortunate enough to have been born and raised in
this beautiful state! I grew up in Parker and then attended university at CU in Boulder. Being
outdoors has always been an essential part of my life; I love to hike, camp, ski and snowboard
and spend as much time as I can in the mountains with my German Shorthair Pointer, Ruby and
my boyfriend, Eric. I now live in Denver and have a passion for mid century modern architecture.
I’m lucky to call a 1950’s mid-mod home!

I have been gluten free for almost 20 years, wow! I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2004
when I was in high school. Back then there were very few gluten free options at the grocery
store and even fewer people understood what I was going through. I spent a lot of my high
school and college years feeling left out of events and activities with friends because of my diet.
But the landscape of information and gluten free options these days has improved so much. My
lifelong journey with celiac disease and dealing with health challenges has inspired me to go
back to school for nutrition and follow my dream of helping others take control of their health
and heal! The Denver metro area has so many great resources these days, one of them being
this amazing chapter of the NCA. I’ve joined the board to help others navigate this journey and
support this wonderful community. Please reach out with any general nutrition related questions
about celiac disease that you may have. I look forward to meeting you all.
