In a Nutshell
Hi, I'm Jenna! I was born with anaphylactic food allergies and have managed them for my entire life. I started this blog in 2018 when I was recovering from an anaphylactic reaction and looking to connect with the food allergy community online to feel less alone in my struggles. I realized that I enjoyed creating allergy-friendly recipes and sharing all of the tips and tricks I had gained over the years to help me live my best life with severe food allergies, so this blog quickly became a huge source of motivation and joy for me.
Through my own struggles with mental health and food allergies, I found that there was a lack of allergy-informed therapists near me. This pushed me to go to school to become an allergy-informed therapist. I'm proud to say that I just graduated with my Master of Social Work and will be working as a child and adolescent therapist in Southern California under the supervision of an LCSW. My goal is to eventually open my own private practice once I am licensed, so stay tuned for that!
For now, I am focusing on continuing to spread food allergy and mental health awareness as well as launching my coaching/consulting business. I believe my lived experience as someone with food allergies combined with my clinical knowledge as a social worker will allow me to help people gain a sense of control and confidence in managing their allergies.

I look forward to connecting with you on your journey! Xo 💙
