• Allergies will change your life.kate-pic

    It’s as simple as that.

    No matter how much you deny it, how much you may ignore it, how many sacrifices you may make to your god(s) …

    Whether your allergies are environmental in nature or food-related. Or both (as in the case of yours truly). Allergies will change your life.

    This site is designed to give you useful information that is written in plain english – with maybe a little sarcastic edge sprinkled on top.

    You need want to live your life.

    You don’t just want to survive – you want to thrive.

    Well, you’ve come to the right place.

Hi, I’m Kate.

I started this website in October 2012 after experiencing my first anaphylactic reaction. Why? Well, first, it was a lot easier to keep family and friends updated on my recovery. Two, my team of doctors (allergists, dermatologists, ENTs, internal medicine experts) all told me the same thing — it’s extremely unusual for someone my age to start developing these allergies/reactions. And third, I found very little information that I felt was geared towards me … someone approaching 40 who suddenly found herself in a “new relationship” with the epi-pen.

Today, at the age of 40, I’m doing what I can to pass along helpful information to you and let you know you’re not alone.

I’m also utilizing all my professional skills — project management, agile development, communication and facilitation — to help food allergy-minded businesses succeed.

The world of food allergies can be intimating and overwhelming.

Together, we got this.
