As a nutrition coach, educator and writer specializing in food allergies and intolerance, Vaughan resident Lisa Cantkier has spent most of her life helping adults and children with celiac disease live a normal, happy life. The mother of two, who also developed award-winning website GlutenFreeFind.com, was presented with the Ward 4 Civic Hero Award on Jan. 13, 2015. The award, which is presented annually to one resident from each of Vaughan’s five wards, recognizes the recipients’ outstanding achievements and independent contributions to the community. Cantkier also volunteers at local schools and coaches her son’s soccer team.
