Welcome to FACTS Coach - FACTS is an acronym for Food Allergy Consultation, Training, and Support! I have been managing food allergies since my younger daughter, Molly, was diagnosed 7 years ago with multiple severe food allergies. Over the years I have developed tools, strategies and mindsets to support my daughter’s physical health and emotional well-being and to help our family survive and thrive safely. I have informally offered coaching and support to friends and acquaintances who are facing similar issues - initial diagnosis, safety at daycare, transitioning to Kindergarten, and dealing with the unique challenges of daily life with a special diet. I have also offered trainings for schools and businesses to help them serve food allergic clients better, and I have worked with friends and extended family to learn how to love and support the people in their life who have food allergies.
This is Food Allergy Awareness Week. It is also the week my sweet girl does a baked egg challenge for the second time - tomorrow! Part of me wants to wait to launch my business, but the rest of me knows that life doesn’t wait for food allergies. So here it is! I will be posting each day this week to raise awareness about food allergies, and I will keep you posted (pun intended) about how it goes tomorrow. Positive thoughts welcome!
