Suffering from undiagnosed celiac disease and then quickly adjusting to a gluten-free diet is no walk in the park whether you’re a child or an adult. Whether you need help now on a specific subject or you want to be well-educated about this major lifestyle change, The Savvy Celiac is all about empowering smart people to become savvy celiacs. Now is the time to embrace the only treatment for this disease – the gluten-free diet.
My daughter was diagnosed with celiac disease at 15-months-old in 2000 and my brother was diagnosed in 2008 at the age of 40. Of course, the site is not just for those with celiac disease. Folks with non-celiac gluten sensitivity also have to follow a strict gluten-free diet and can learn a lot from the information on The Savvy Celiac.
As an Emmy Award-winning journalist with nearly 15 years of experience in television news, I look for ways to bring news in the gluten-free and celiac world straight to you in a relevant and valuable way. On occasion I will share a personal story, but my goal is to educate people by combining the latest news with my experience, frustrations, and successes managing the gluten-free lifestyle in my home.
Whether you are a parent looking to help your celiac kids, or an adult with non-celiac gluten sensitivity, I hope you enjoy the information as well.

- Consulting help to incorporate a gluten-free menu into your restaurant or lunchroom! People who see “gluten free” on your menu expect that your organization is highly educated and will work hard to keep their food safe from gluten. Knowing the cross contamination hazards, safe handling practices in the kitchen and an understanding about what gluten free means to people with celiac disease is very important! I can help you make that change and put good practices into place.
