My name is Alice Bast, and I am the Founder and President of the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA), a national non-profit that drives diagnoses and improves quality of life for those maintaining a medically necessary gluten-free diet.
Through my work at NFCA, I have met a number of female entrepreneurs and leaders who have built incredible projects from the ground up. I’ve always wondered if they shared the same experience I did – a blend of “I can do this!” with “What the heck am I doing?” One thing I do know: We’ve all succeeded.
I created this blog to share stories from these trailblazing women. As you’ll find, they are strong. They are inspiring. They are resourceful. And best of all, they are all around us.
Please enjoy these stories, and please share your own “Seat of Our Pantyhose” adventures!
