If nut allergies don't affect you, there's likely someone you know who deals with what can sometimes be a life-threatening condition.

I'm so proud of Shrewsbury's Olivia Moglino. She took a pretty "crumby" situation and channeled positive energy to gain success and help others at the same time.

When Olivia was 16 months old, she experienced a near death anaphylactic reaction to peanuts and has made it her life’s mission to bake safe, nut-free desserts for people with nut allergies.

At 16, she started "Nada Nut Bakery," a local “pick-up” bakery that she started out of her house. All of the offerings were nut-free and allergy-friendly.

Fast forward four years and Olivia is opening her own store-front bakery called "Liv-Nut-Free."

The New York Institute of Culinary Education graduate is severely allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, chickpeas, and lentils. She uses her life experiences and training to make custom cakes, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, crumb cake and more. All of the treats are allergy-friendly.

The grand opening of Olivia's store is Saturday, September 15 at 55 White Road in Shrewsbury. Good luck, Olivia!
