Known as “The Gluten-Free Guru,” Danna Korn is the author of “Living Gluten-Free for Dummies,” “Gluten-Free Cooking for Dummies,” “Wheat-Free, Worry-Free: The Art of Happy, Healthy, Gluten-Free Living,” and “Kids with Celiac Disease: A Family Guide to Raising Happy, Healthy Gluten-Free Children.” Respected as one of the leading authorities on the gluten free diet and the medical conditions that benefit from it, she has been featured in People Magazine, on ABC’s “20-20,” and dozens of other national media outlets.
Danna has been researching celiac disease and the gluten free diet since her son, Tyler, was diagnosed with the condition in 1991. That same year, she founded R.O.C.K. (Raising Our Celiac Kids), a support group for families of children on a gluten free diet. Today, Danna leads more than 140 chapters of R.O.C.K. throughout the U.S. and Canada. She speaks frequently around the country to health care professionals, celiacs, parents of celiacs, parents of autistic kids involved in a gluten free/casein-free dietary intervention program, and others on a gluten free diet. Twice she has been an invited presenter at the International Symposium on Celiac Disease.
Danna is founder of GlutenFreedom, which offers consultation services to large natural food companies, testing companies, dietitians and nutritionists, and people newly diagnosed with gluten intolerance and celiac disease. She is the national spokesperson for Hain Celestial’s gluten free product line and gluten free consumer initiatives. She is also co-founder of Sonic Boom Wellness, a national corporate wellness company.
But what Danna loves best is teaching people to live -- and love -- the gluten free lifestyle. One of her many mantras is, “Gluten-Free is good for me!”
