What's your dream travel destination?
What's your relationship to dietary restrictions? (e.g. you/your child, allergy/celiac)
I have a tree nut allergy and now dietary restrictions to gluten due to an autoimmune disease.
What led you to become an Equal Eats ambassador? (why is their mission important to you?)
The Equal Eats Values - Inclusion. Empowerment. Understanding. As a child with a food allergy I often felt left out and looked at my restriction with a negative attitude. But as an adult I've grown to be thankful for my allergy - It's opened up an entire community of like-minded people and it has taught me critical life skills like being able to speak up for myself.
What do you find is the most challenging?
Having the restaurant industry understand that my allergy is life threatening and that they take it seriously.
What's the one bright side you have found of managing a dietary restriction?
Managing my allergy has made me more self-aware of ingredients as a whole and the importance of eating healthy and clean! I love recreating recipes at home that are healthier, SAFE, and use overall better-for-you ingredients!
What's your goal or impact you'd like to achieve being an Equal Eats ambassador?
To help someone feel less alone in their allergy journey.
