About Me

I’m Kathryn and I’m 26 years old from Erskine, in Scotland. I was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease in 2012 when there still wasn’t a whole lot of information out there about gluten free food. I had just gained a university degree in journalism and really wanted the opportunity to keep my writing skills up to scratch. I’d had a blog previously writing theatre reviews but the gluten free blogging opportunity seemed too good to miss! However, as I have never been, and never will be a “foodie”, it has presented me with lots of challenges.

So where did ‘The Gluten Free Cheerleader’ come from I hear you ask? I was a competitive allstar cheerleader for eight years prior to my diagnosis and decided this name was basically perfect for me. Four years on I am still involved in cheerleading through coaching so although the name isn’t quite accurate anymore, it’s stuck.

Aside from cheerleading, my other main interests are in film, musical theatre and Disney. I’m a huge Disney fan and spent a year living and working at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Occasionally you’ll get the odd Disney food review popping up on the site which I’ve pulled from my archive of mental reviews!

So that’s me! Please don’t forget to ‘Like’ me on Facebook and follow me on Bloglovin’
