A little big piece of me.

My name is, Chelsea Moffat and in short I am a 24 year old, Bow Valley College Business Administration Diploma Marketing Major Student (Graduating spring 2017), and I have celiac disease.

Though celiac disease is not all of who I am, it has become the driving force behind all of my recent achievements, breathing new life into my career aspirations, and overall self confidence and creating friendships.

If you don’t think that a dietary restriction can do all of that, Think again.

In 2013, I was newly diagnosed, in college working towards a nursing diploma that I liked but did not love. I felt lost, inadequate and that I did not fit in. Post diagnoses, I felt a need to connect with others like myself who fear the wheat. Now, 3 years later I have used this blog to propel my adult life, building strong, lasting, professional relationships, finding a college program that I feel represents who I am to some extent and is giving me the tools to fuel my creativity and the drive to make changes within my life and community.

Because of celiac disease, I now know that the sky is truly the limit and would like to see where else it takes me, right here in the beautiful YYC, Calgary, Alberta.
