Violets is the 28 y/o mother of 2. She began suffering from food allergies several years ago, misdiagnosed as "IBS" and "stress" in the beginning. Violets' corn allergy was discovered accidentally, during an elimination diet designed to treat her daughter's migraine headaches. She went on to be diagnosed with celiac disease, as well as several other food allergies. More at her personal blog.
She has been researching corn allergies as a patient and advocate for 3 years. Though not the only one with food allergies in the household, she appears to be the only one with a severe corn allergy.
When taking a break from allergy research and safe cooking, she enjoys scrapbooking and crochet.
