ERICA DERMER

Humor writer, Celiac and the Beast

Erica Dermer started Celiac and the Beast because she had a new, humorous, and smart voice to bring to the gluten-free table. With a background in marketing/PR, and market research, she’s always had a soft spot in her heart for marketing, and branding in the specialty diets and natural products industry. It also helps that she’s a “so-so” cook, relying on gluten-free products to help her get through her day without burning down the kitchen. She uses humor as a celiac and gluten-free advocate to educate the world about celiac disease and the importance of this "less than 20ppm" universe we live in. Her first book, "Celiac and the Beast: A Love Story Between a Gluten-Free Girl, Her Genes, and a Broken Digestive Tract" was released in 2013 and highlights her life with a celiac disease diagnosis and what she's learned along the way.
