Anna Sonnenberg is a food and travel writer who has traveled gluten-free since receiving a celiac diagnosis in 2012. Altogether, she has visited 42 states, 17 countries, and 4 continents, and she has planned and researched gluten-free travel in hundreds of cities. Anna launched Gluten-Free Jet Set in 2013 to share travel advice, gluten-free product reviews, and tips for navigating a healthy, full gluten-free life. In 2015, she will publish the first in a series of gluten-free travel guides to cities worldwide.
Erin Smith was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1981, so she has been eating gluten-free almost her entire life, and all of Erin’s travels have always been gluten-free. Erin has a unique perspective of growing up in the gluten-free community. She is passionate about sharing her experiences and expertise with others. She’s been to 27 states, 18 countries, 3 continents, and always remains 100% gluten-free!
Erin has been writing her gluten-free lifestyle website Gluten-Free Fun since 2007. In 2011, she launched Gluten-Free Globetrotter™ during a trip in the Czech Republic. Gluten-Free Globetrotter is a website that encourages those with celiac disease to travel the world and not be scared about eating gluten-free domestically and abroad. This website shares personal travel stories, gluten-free travel tips, international celiac resources, itinerary planning assistance, and positive reinforcement to those who are gluten-free and want to travel the globe. When she is not gluten-free globetrotting, Erin is the lead organizer of the NYC Celiac Disease Meetup group.
