Victoria Groce is a former writer for Verywell Health. Groce was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2000. At that time, since there was little widespread information on the condition, she began an intense self-education on celiac disease and related conditions, including wheat allergy. Groce's freelance writing career has included restricted-diet and science features for Gluten Free and More (formerly Living Without Magazine) and Mental Floss. She has also worked as a freelance editor for academic dissertations and university presses.
Groce holds a BA in Comparative Literature from the University of Georgia and has done post-baccalaureate courses in genetics, biochemistry, and physiology at the University of Pittsburgh.
