We are experts in managing multiple food allergies.
An AllerCoach™ is your personal advocate and will help you with hands-on cooking, kitchen training, where to shop, how to order food, make travel plans, know where it is safe to eat and places to avoid.
Kristen Nevdal has been a certified AllerCoach since 2017. Her mission is to help those (or their loved ones) that are newly diagnosed with multiple food allergies or other medically necessary diets navigate life with confidence. Having experienced a new diagnosis herself she understands how lost and confused a person can feel when they first receive a diagnosis.
Kristen has been managing her daughter's multiple food allergies for over 5 years. When she was first diagnosed they had to eliminate 6 of the 8 common allergens. Kristen remembers feeling overwhelmed and confused about how to feed her with all the new restrictions. As a working mom, she had to figure out how to manage her allergies and find a daycare provider that would do the same. In the past 5+ years she has learned a lot and she has started her own company, Living Free Allergy Consulting, so that she can help others.
As a certified AllerCoach Kristen's goal is to guide individuals to live a more manageable life so that they can feel free again. She'd like to shift the focus from "dairy-free", "egg-free", "nut-free", etc., to just being free. She can show the way to managing allergies and medically necessary diets in a way so that you can feel empowered, and most importantly, free again.
