Erin Smith

Patient Leader

Erin Smith began her gluten-free lifestyle website, Gluten-Free Fun, in 2007. In 2011, she launched Gluten-Free Globetrotter during a trip in the Czech Republic. Gluten-Free Globetrotter shares travel tips, international celiac resources, itinerary planning assistance, and positive encouragement to those living with celiac disease who want to travel (gluten-free) across the globe. Erin is the lead organizer of the NYC Celiac Disease Meetup group, a social community that has grown to over 1,900 members in the eight years she has been organizing the group. Erin Smith was diagnosed with celiac disease in the early 1980s, so she’s been eating gluten-free almost her entire life.
