About Mom's Place Gluten-Free
Jann is the owner and CEO of Mom's Place Gluten Free. She is also a mother of three amazing children, Alexsis, Cheyenne, and Justin. They are the best things that ever happened to her (before the grandchildren of course!). Her favorite hobby is spending time with her amazing grandchildren, Addisyn and Lincoln.
She was diagnosed with Celiac many, many years ago, back when there were hardly any gluten-free food options. Back then, everything tasted terrible. She wants to help people feel better and still be able to eat "normal" and healthy. Mom's Place helps return joy to the kitchen with healthy, great-tasting gluten free options. She strives to manage and direct the new product development, manufacturing and distribution arms of Mom's Place Gluten Free, while working with as many families as time allows to help other families avoid the many health issues that can arise from the consumption of gluten in today's society.
Jann has her Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration, and she also teaches an Adult Living Series at the local college, teaching people everywhere how to "Eat Gluten Free & Love it!" We help people learn that eating gluten free can taste amazing, be easy and affordable!
