Hi, I’m Hillary! I’m a former corporate communications professional turned Food Allergy Mama and Advocate.
When my two boys were both diagnosed with a long list of life-threatening food allergies, our world turned upside down. Over the last eight years we’ve had our share of struggles, but we have learned so much along the way. One amazing outcome of our journey is the connection with other food allergy families – this community is like no other!
I created this website to better connect with YOU by utilizing my professional toolbox of skills to:
Share my experiences, discoveries, and suggestions in hopes that it makes your food allergy road an easier one to travel. Please visit my Blog for inspiration and Recipes for cooking ideas. My Story recounts my personal food allergy journey.
Advocate on behalf of my children and all the 32 million Americans with food allergies on important issues pertaining to our community. Check out my YouTube series with FARE, Take Action! with Hillary Carter, where I highlight incredible advocates from all walks of life.
Collaborate with media, food allergy brands, pharmaceutical companies, or any interested party or organization who wants to better understand or manage the reality of living with food allergies. Visit my Media/Events section for examples of my previous work, and click on Let’s Collaborate if you’d like to partner on a project.
(Please note that I am just a mama doing my best, NOT a doctor, so always consult your board-certified allergist for medical advice. And, of course, read every label, every time, to find the best products for your family.)
The most important reason I do this is for my resilient, hilarious, healthy, high-energy, big-hearted boys Owen (10) and Grayson (8), who make my world go ‘round. The more people who understand food allergies, the safer they will be.
