Victoria Groce is a former writer for Verywell Fit. 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 B.A. in comparative literature from the University of Georgia and has done post-baccalaureate courses in genetics, biochemistry, and physiology at the University of Pittsburgh.
