After many years of unexplained medical issues, I was finally diagnosed with celiac disease in 2002. The first couple of years were a rough road traveled, but I am feeling better than I ever have. It is important that I share what I have learned over the years with others and to do my part to help raise awareness of celiac disease.
Mrs. Alaska United States is a prestigious and elite title, which requires each contestant to choose a platform to speak on throughout their reign, should they become Mrs. Alaska. Brandy Wendler chose as her platform: “Against the Grain, Raising Awareness for Celiac Disease” and has already begun making appearances throughout the community to increase awareness and support public health.
Mrs. Alaska, Brandy Wendler, currently lives in Eagle River, and is available for appearances and speaking engagements.
