Hi, my name is Rochelle. I live outside of Buffalo, New York with my husband and two children. I am employed as a critical care physician assistant.
Our gluten-free journey began two years ago when our son was diagnosed with celiac disease. Since then, I have developed a new appreciation and understanding of the severity of this disease. I have realized the difficulties that patients with celiac disease face on a daily basis. I have also recognized the lack of knowledge society and medical professionals have regarding this disease.
After my personal experiences, I acquired a passion to make a difference for my son and other celiac disease patients. I aspire to make a difference in the lives of celiac disease patients by spreading awareness about the disease and sharing what I’ve learned from my family’s experiences. I hope to support others with this disease and letting them know they can still live a fulfilling life.
I am excited to work with Beyond Celiac to break down barriers to normal, daily life activities, specifically among schools and the medical community.
