Mrs. Alaska Brandy Wendler Celiac Disease

Brandy Wendler, the new Mrs. Alaska, has celiac disease.

April 8, 2011, Anchorage, Alaska: Brandy Wendler, wife of JohnRoss Wendler, pilot officer of Elmendorf Air Force Base who is serving in Japan’s relief effort, was crowned Mrs. Alaska United States 2011 in front of a packed auditorium at the Wilda Marston Theatre in Anchorage on Saturday, April 2nd, 2011.  

Although the Mrs. Alaska pageant was Mrs. Wendler’s first time competing in a pageant, her passion for speaking about Celiac disease, a disease Mrs. Wendler was diagnosed with 3 years ago, stole the hearts of the judges and the entire audience. 

Mrs. Alaska United States is a prestigious and elite title, which requires each contestant to choose a platform to speak on throughout their reign, should they become Mrs. Alaska.  Brandy Wendler chose as her platform: “Against the Grain, Raising Awareness for Celiac Disease” and has already begun making appearances throughout the community to increase awareness and support public health. Brandy also heads the Anchorage Gluten-Free Support Group, a chapter of the Celiac Disease Foundation.

More information, including her public calendar and Mrs. Alaska blog, is available on www.MrsAlaska.com.
