Erin Smith was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1981, so she has been eating gluten-free almost her entire life. Erin has a unique perspective of growing up in the gluten-free community. She is passionate about sharing her experiences and expertise with others.
Erin has been writing her gluten-free lifestyle website Gluten-Free Fun since 2007. In 2011, she launched Gluten-Free Globetrotter™ during a trip in the Czech Republic. Gluten-Free Globetrotter is a website that encourages those with celiac disease to travel the world and not be scared about eating gluten-free domestically and abroad. This website also shares gluten-free travel tips, international celiac resources, itinerary planning assistance, and positive reinforcement to those who are gluten-free and want to travel the globe. As someone living with Celiac Disease for more than thirty years, all of Erin’s travels have always been gluten-free. She’s been to 27 states, 18 countries, 3 continents, and always 100% gluten-free!
When she is not gluten-free globetrotting, Erin is the lead organizer of the NYC Celiac Disease Meetup group. This is a social community that hosts events in the New York City area and has grown to over 2,000 members in the ten years she has been organizing the group.
