Erin Smith

Patient Leader

Erin Smith was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1981 and has been eating gluten-free ever since. She is a true pioneer for the celiac community. Erin began her blog Gluten-Free Fun in 2007 to share her lifelong experiences with celiac. In 2011, she launched Gluten-Free Globetrotter during a trip in the Czech Republic. This website shares travel tips, international celiac resources, itinerary planning assistance, and positive encouragement to those living with celiac who want to travel (gluten-free) across the globe. Erin ran the NYC Celiac Disease Meetup group for more than 10 years, started the Santa Cruz Celiac Group, and she volunteers for the Celiac Community Foundation of NorCal.
