Hello! My name is Dana and I am a mother of 3 amazing kids. Many years ago, I met and fell in love with Khaled, who then became my husband and the father of my children. Together, we built a home filled with love, and, like most homes, a whole lot of food, until we learned of our eldest son's serious food allergies. A few years later, I gave birth to my second son. Soon after, we found out that he too shared his brother's allergy. I had my third child, a girl this time, and she is currently following her older brothers’ diets. We have yet to learn if she too has food allergies. For now, she is getting all the nutrition she needs through the carefully planned meals I prepare at home.
As a mother of kids with life-threatening food allergies, I found myself suddenly thrown into this world I knew nothing about. Like any mother in my situation, I spent every possible minute I could spare doing research and learning all I possibly can about this unexpected detour in my life. I became obsessed with everything related to food allergies and this obsession soon turned into a passion.
In 2016, and after realizing that I share my fate with many many families in Jordan, and in the world, I decided to take my knowledge about food allergies to the next level. I became a certified Food Allergy Coach. I received this certification through AllerCoach (TM), which is the first International food allergy management training and certification program for coaches and consultants.
My first-hand experience in the daily effort to keep my children safe and healthy is the reason I understand the struggles families go through with having one or more people with food allergies in the house. I take each case personally and I offer my support wholeheartedly to the people and families I work with.
