Meet Sharon


Hi, I’m Sharon and I’m so happy that you are here! 

Welcome to The Helpful GF where I share my family’s gluten-free journey with you. 

Here you’ll find up-to-date information on:

  • eating gluten free (including tried & true recipes)
  • reviews & taste tests of gluten-free products
  • guides for eating out gluten-free
  • gluten-free travel guides
  • and general resources for living gluten-free.

My husband, Tyler, was diagnosed with Celiac disease in 1997 (back when you could really only get gluten-free food from a mail-order catalog and it pretty much tasted like cardboard…. or maybe sand?). 

When we married in 2012, I had to learn what in the world this whole gluten-free thing was. 

So–I totally understand how stressful this switch to gluten-free can be…

But I also know that living gluten-free can be SO life-giving as you let go of the terrible symptoms that come when getting glutened. ugh.

In these past years, I’ve had a few opportunities to share what I’ve learned with others who needed to switch to gluten-free, and I’m so excited to be able to share it with you. 


I’m a Dietetic Intern and graduate student pursuing a Masters in Nutrition and Dietetics with credentials to become a Registered Dietitian.  

I’m also a Student Member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the Hudson Valley Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics.

I’m also ServSafe Manager certified.


I’ve had recipes and advice featured with: ApartmentTherapy, Parade, Edible Arrangements, MSN, BeyondCeliac, KissMyKeto and more!
