At Alan, we understand the severity of food allergies - those who suffer from this medical condition should be recognized for their strength and vigor.
It is our mission to connect people with food allergies to one another to share experiences, concerns, or questions - and to provide resources that will relieve any food allergy-related concerns.
KATHERINE, FOUNDER & CEO
Katherine is twenty years old and is currently enrolled at Rutgers University. She is severely allergic to dairy, eggs, peanuts, and tree nuts. Before designing The Alan App, Katherine was the creator of Teen FAAB (Food Allergies & Anti-Bullying), a website that provides advice and support for food allergic teenagers. Many are bullied because of their food allergies, and through her website, Katherine lets people know that they are not alone.
Ever since middle school, Katherine has always dreamed of creating a food allergy app. However, she has never acted upon this idea until now. Katherine has designed The Alan App - an app that will have many features such as an emergency section and messaging component. The app will be launched in the summer of 2020.
