Sheila is a good friend and college classmate. Always an active person, Sheila’s world changed when she became ill with Lyme disease. In order to manage her health and post-Lyme neurological damage, she quit her corporate job and focused on treatments and healing. A large part of healing involved cleaning up her diet and experimenting with healthy recipes. She became well-versed in and knowledgeable about anti-inflammatory diets, vegan lifestyle, gluten free, Paleo, Keto, Whole30® , socially responsible ingredients, low carb/sugar, yeast free, and organic foods. Her quest for a healthy life and her desire to provide support to others battling chronic disease led her to open She She’s Bakery, a home-based alternate bakery which is completely vegan and yeast free. You can feel confident that what you are eating is home made, clean, and organic! Check out her online store and get inspired by her story.
