Paula

Patient Leader

Co-founder of CeliacCorner.com. I created this on-line resource to help spread awareness of celiac and non-celiac gluten-sensitivity and provide tips for living a gluten-free lifestyle. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and Lactose Intolerance after years of experiencing gastro issues and fatigue. The lack of awareness, even among some medical professionals, ignited my passion to spread awareness so others will recognize symptoms and pursue a timely diagnosis to avoid further health complications. I am a wife and mother of twin boys, and we share our home with our favorite Australian Labradoodle, Maya.
