About Danna Korn
Known as "The Gluten-Free Guru," Danna Korn is an author, motivational speaker, and renowned expert on the gluten-free diet and medical conditions that benefit. She is the author of six bestselling books (her 7th is in the works) on the subject of the gluten-free lifestyle, including three in the prestigious "For Dummies" series. "For Dummies" authors are always the gurus in their field, and are asked to author the books -- not the other way around.
Respected as one of the leading authorities on the gluten-free diet and the medical conditions that benefit from it, she has been featured in People Magazine, on ABC's "20-20," and dozens of other national media outlets.
Danna's passion for helping people live (and love!) a gluten-free lifestyle was born from a desperate need to help her own son. In 1991, her son was diagnosed with celiac disease, a genetic intolerance to gluten. Doctors told her that her son, like others with celiac disease, would "suffer" a life of deprivation and restrictions, and they gave her no direction for following a gluten-free diet, which was the key to his improved health. Danna wasn't about to accept that sentence, nor would she flounder like many others attempting a gluten-free diet did. Furthermore, she was committed to helping others who could benefit from her knowledge. She was a mom on a mission to help millions.
Without the benefit of the internet, and ignoring the widespread warnings that no one would ever publish a book on the subject, Danna conducted extensive medical research with the nation's foremost experts, and then wrote her first book -- she sent four proposals to publishers. She received four acceptances.
Her work in the gluten-free community has had profound effects, resulting in availability of products that would never have made it to store shelves, and a skyrocketing awareness of the benefits of a gluten-free diet.
Several bestselling books and thousands of speaking engagements later, Danna has earned the moniker of "Gluten-Free Guru" -- and in the process has helped improve the lives of millions by helping them adopt healthier lifestyles. She is a partner with General Mills and their gluten-free initiative, and a consultant for Prometheus Laboratories. In 1991 she founded (and still runs) the world's largest support group of its type, R.O.C.K. (Raising Our Celiac Kids), which has more than 140 chapters throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Danna's passion for wellness extends far beyond gluten-free living. She is co-founder and CEO of Sonic Boom Wellness, an innovative corporate wellness company with more than 100 well-known clients throughout the world.
