Nadine Grzeskowiak RN, BSN, CEN

Nadine Grzeskowiak, RN, BSN, CEN began her nursing career in 1992 in emergency, trauma and critical care at hospitals throughout Oregon. In 2006, she was diagnosed with celiac disease, a disease she had previously never heard of before, even as a nurse. At the time of diagnosis, she expected to be dead in 6 months or less. Within two weeks of beginning a gluten free diet her health began to improve remarkably which led to a life and career-changing shift. Nadine founded three nursing businesses shortly thereafter: RN on Call, Inc. in February 2007, Gluten Free RN in March 2007 followed by Celiac Nurse Consulting. Presently Nadine is an expert consultant, author and professional speaker on all aspects of gluten intolerance, celiac disease, the Paleo lifestyle and surrounding topics. She has presented over 1,800 lectures to various audiences. Nadine’s first book, DOUGH NATION: A Nurse’s Memoir of Celiac Disease From Missed Diagnosis to Food and Health Activism was officially released September 2015. Nadine is foremost a patient advocate and an educator. Her mission is to educate people globally about gluten intolerance and celiac disease empowering them to improve their health and quality of life with food. In her spare time Nadine can be found climbing mountains, hiking, reading, knitting and eating excellent meals with family and friends.
