Allergy Amulet

The Allergy Amulet is a rapid, portable, point-of-consumption food allergen detection device that connects to a patent-pending, disposable test strip. The device enables simple, mobile measurements to help individuals avoid ingesting target allergens. The Allergy Amulet can be configured as a wearable (e.g., necklace) or integrated into everyday products (e.g., EpiPen).

What motivates you day in and day out?

The knowledge that our product could improve the lives of millions of individuals living with food allergies. Having been hospitalized six times for my own food allergies, I hold a personal stake in seeing our product successfully to market.

What are your hobbies/ what do you do when you're not working on your business?

Mostly walks with my dog Murphy and yoga. I also try to always have a novel going - the latest read was The World According to Garp. John Irving is a brilliant writer. I find I'm generally more creative and productive when I carve out time to exercise and read.
