Howdy! I’m a married mom of four and a CT resident. I have a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations from Boston University and a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Loyola University Maryland.
In 2011, after visiting a naturopath for severe eczema, I was advised to remove both gluten and dairy from my diet. I was surprised by how quickly I felt better, and watched my skin heal, slowly but surely. In 2016, after my youngest kids went off to school, I created Gluten-Free Connecticut in an effort to help other folks like me locate gluten-free resources, products, and dining. It was wildly successful, and in 2018, I expanded into the rest of New England with a completely rebuilt website, brand-new domain, and staff.
Our mission is to connect the community with the ever-growing array of safe and gluten-friendly restaurants, bakeries, artisans and businesses, both in New England and the rest of the country. We especially love providing exposure for start-ups and small businesses, as some of our favorite products are made by the smallest artisans. We’re proud of the vibrant and enthusiastic gluten-free community that has evolved from our efforts, and are constantly working to provide the best and most efficient platform for sharing ideas, restaurants, recipes, events, and more.
It takes a village to keep up with products, menus, and protocols, so if you have a suggestion, question, or correction, please let me know. I answer every email and I absolutely want to hear from you.
Yours in delicious gluten-free dining,
