What I Do Now:

Board Member, Food Allergy Fund, non-profit focused on underlying causes of food allergies.

Speaker, Guest Teacher, Research Advocate for the food allergy community.

Why I wrote a book: I was an English teacher long before I was a mother, but children changed my life in ways I hadn't foreseen. My son Eden was seriously allergic to seven of the "Big 8" food allergens. So I devoted myself to learning about this vexing modern epidemic. I began narrating my family's food allergy journey to support the food allergy community and to unpack the universal experiences of food and family: I began as a blogger and then I wrote my memoir, FEEDING EDEN: I continue to support the food allergy community by writing, speaking and teaching.
