For years I didn’t know the power and value of my own food allergy knowledge. As a food allergy adult, I’ve lived my entire life with a severe life-threatening peanut allergy. Comfortably in my thirties now, I know the ins and outs of my own life with a food allergy, and have learned that often I am my own best resource and food allergy advocate.
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, every food allergy is as individualized as the person, and every allergic reaction is different. This can make discussing food allergies tricky. However, with an open mind and careful listening, there are ways to adapt and learn to live as safely as possible with any food allergy. Trust me! While there should be no food allergy generalizations made, I’m here to help coach on all things life with food allergies as someone who knows the space well and is an authoritative figure in it. While I mostly discuss my food allergy here, I do have environmental and chemical allergies as well and can speak to living with those, too.

Food Allergy Representation Consultation
A note to all you non-food allergic creatives: Before you film a movie with a grossly inaccurate allergic reaction scene, or misrepresent someone living with a food allergy, ask for advice from someone in the space. Too much inaccurate allergy representation has happened across mass media, leading to stereotypes and misconceptions that are harmful to the food allergic community. Properly representing life with a food allergy and food allergy reactions and/or anaphylaxis will limit deadly misinformation and better serve all parties involved, including your audience! While I’m not a doctor, I can provide direction if you’re seeking to represent life with a food allergy or an allergic reaction, in a way that an allergist may or may not be able to. If you’re seeking medical or professional advice, I can help connect you to a trustworthy source in the space.

I am not a doctor, lawyer, or allergist, and I’m not trying to give medical advice. My advice is from my own personal lived and learned experience. I will direct you to a professional or outside trusted resource if anything is beyond of my scope of expertise.
