Recognizing that healing comes in many different forms, pharmacist Dr. Nicholas Conley, created The Healing Arts Club as a type of “insurance” for better health. Dr. Nick is a North Carolina native and devoted his Doctoral studies in pharmacy learning how to unite traditional medicine with complementary and alternative healing practices. During his professional training, he noticed a growing curiosity in the healing arts amongst his patients and decided to investigate for himself. Dr. Nick was compelled to merge his background with his passion to fulfill the need for affordable, holistic healthcare. And so the Healing Arts Club (www.healingartsclub.com) was born.



As an adult with health issues, Tiffany learned she was gluten and lactose intolerant. This turned her life upside down. Not knowing where to start she found pre-made gluten free items overpriced and she still wanted to eat family favorites. Experimenting in the kitchen began with research and practice. Tiffany can now turn any desirable recipe into gluten and dairy free, without sacrificing the taste. 


Tiffany started blogging in June of 2010, while going through treatments for infertility. Like many others; she struggled to talk about her experience, leading to an online journal for sharing emotions and heart. Following the birth of her first child she
began to share gluten free substitutes for her favorite family recipes on her blogGFmomcertified.com. After three children in just three years, gluten free cooking has become a necessity. Discovering she was not alone in the challenge to feed a gluten free family, opened the path to writing Gluten Free Mom Certified. She creates and shares GF recipes each week on her blog to help GF mothers meet the challenge of GF cooking.



Nikki Everett founded ECHO Event Solutions, LLC in 2011 to oversee educational events and trade shows for the gluten/allergen free community. Her mission to plan events started in Charlotte, NC, her home town, in 2009. Nikki uses her vast knowledge as an advocate for the gluten/allergen free community on behalf of her daughter who was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2008. She recognized her daughter's grief process through her support group background as a teenager. After the unfortunate death of her older brother, Nikki's mother became a regional leader for Compassionate Friends, a national support group for bereaved families, when Nikki was only 11 years old. Nikki went on to become a youth peer support group leader by 14 years of age. Her presentation to the NC State Board of Education helped open the door for peer support groups throughout Middle and High Schools across the state. Nikki carried on this legacy as an adult by chartering R.O.C.K. (Raising Our Celiac Kids) for Charlotte, NC in 2009. Her positive approach to the journey of dietary change makes each event a celebration of community wherever they are held.
