I grew up with environmental allergies, asthma and food allergies in the Twin Cities. While still in high school I started volunteering at the University of Minnesota in the Allergy division. I have continued this desire to help others with similar disorders live a normal life. It is with great enjoyment that I am back where the journey started.
