Darla Markley No Guilt Bakery on Startup Santa Show

Having always been an avid baker and foodie. Diagnosed with celiac disease 20 years ago, which has driven her to practice in baking with non-traditional ingredients. Darla's personal belief is that "healthy" food should still taste good! No Guilt Baking was born.

Retired RN with a Masters in Nursing and Education. She became ill in 2009 with transverse myelitis which ended the career path she was on (PHD student). She was confined to a wheelchair for many years after. Over 2 years ago Darla and her husband embarked on a low carb adventure to help him control his Type II Diabetes. They never dreamed she would experience the improvements they have. The wheelchair has been officially retired! She may never regain 100% function, but is grateful to have experienced the gains made. Now she wants to help others be successful at improving their health!
