Victoria is a freelance writer and editor with a particular interest in restricted-diet cookery and lifestyle. Her interest in food allergies was sparked by her own experience with a related condition.
Victoria was diagnosed with celiac disease (an incurable autoimmune disorder marked by an intolerance of gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley) as a college student in 2000. At that time, since there was little widespread information on the condition, she began an intense self-education on celiac disease and related conditions, including wheat allergy. Victoria's freelance writing career has included restricted-diet and science features for Living Without Magazine and mental_floss. She has also worked as a freelance editor for academic dissertations and university presses.
A former Jeopardy! champion, Victoria holds a bachelor's degree with honors from the University of Georgia.
From Victoria Groce:
When I first started living with a restricted diet, I was overwhelmed not only by the amount of information I needed to learn to keep myself healthy, but by the sheer number of resources I had to marshal to do so. My goal is to give you a one-stop site where you can find the most accurate and useful health and lifestyle resources already gathered for you.
