about the celiacademic

Just a gluten free girl living in a gluten filled world and doing just fine! 😉

So who is the celiacademic? I am a twenty-something girl living in beautiful, sunny (sometimes) California with my bf, the DCF, and two nutjob dogs, Amy and Eloise (sorry for the Eloise-in-a-visor picture).

After being diagnosed with celiac disease over a year ago, I have been on a strict gluten free diet ever since, and it has made a significant impact on my life. Although my health requires me to eat gluten free, I have found it to be an educational, albeit challenging, situation. My outlook on food and health has changed significantly over the past year, which is one of the main reasons that I am now back in school to study nutrition. After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in marketing and business management and then working at a financial planning firm, I have recently gone back to school to (eventually) get my masters in nutrition and to (maybe someday) become a registered dietitian.

The past few months have been quite a change, but I am looking forward to learning more about food and fitness and hopefully sharing that with some of you along the way!
