Michelle began writing in hopes of providing a fun yet informative manner in which to share allergy information.

Jennifer Terry is a graphic designer/illustrator living in Denver, Colorado, USA. Her daughter, Lauren, is a middle school student, active in musical theatre, who also happens to have anaphylactic food allergies.
