Jennifer's Short Bio:
Jennifer Fugo is the founder of Gluten Free School and teaches gluten-sensitive individuals simple, savvy and empowering steps to get healthy. Living gluten-free since early 2008 after a gluten sensitivity diagnosis, she knows what it's like to feel overwhelmed by the cost and seemingly complicated aspects of going gluten-free. A sought-after expert, advocate & speaker about healthy, gluten-free living, Jennifer has been featured on Dr. Oz, Yahoo! News, eHow, CNN, and Philadelphia Magazine and is the author behind the ground-breaking book "The Savvy Gluten-Free Shopper: How to Eat Healthy without Breaking the Bank".


Personal information:
Jennifer was diagnosed with gluten, dairy and egg intolerances in 2008 and experienced a massive health change by removing those offending foods.  However a year later, she became sick again with Adrenal Fatigue and Candida due to the amount of years she'd previously been sick due to food intolerances and then having spent the past year eating a 'Standard American' Gluten-Free diet.  Through completely overhauling her own gluten-free diet, she was able to break free of her own sugar addiction and resolve the issues.
