My Work in the Food Allergy Community

I got involved in the food allergy community through support outreach and fundraising in 2009, following my oldest child’s first anaphylactic reaction. Later in 2012 I initiated legislation to allow for stock epinephrine to be available for all students in Arizona schools. Later in 2013, that bill was signed into law. In 2018, I began focusing my energy on reaching out to the food allergy community through my blog Food Allergy P.I. where I share my own experience caring for food allergies, travel, dining out, product finds, and recipe creation. Most recently, in 2021 I authored The Everything Nut Allergy Cookbook.

Continuing to Help Others in the Community

Now as we head into 2022, I have created the Food Allergy Talk podcast as a way to continue building community and helping others in the food allergy community. 

Support & Growth in All Facets of Life with Food Allergy

My goal is to help you not only learn from my journey, and from those interviewed on the Food Allergy Talk Podcast, but to grow and gain confidence in all facets of living a full whole life with food allergy – body, mind, and spirit.

Let’s Connect, Uplift, Empower and Succeed

Health, safety, social, emotional, and spiritual well being. All of which are impacted by living with food allergies, as well as for those caring for others with food allergies. This is Food Allergy Talk… where you can come to connect, and leave uplifted, empowered and ready for success.
