Brandt Perry (Family Advisory Committee Representative)
Brandt Perry is a native of Arizona, where he and his wife Krya raise three energetic children – Austin (10), Brayden (8) and Sydney (6). First encounter with Feeding Matters came in 2016 when 18-month-old Brayden was diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) and severe food allergies, when the Perrys were searching for information to navigate the new path in front of them. Brayden eats 100% through his G-tube, but that doesn’t slow him down. Brayden’s younger sister, Sydney was diagnosed with Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome (FPIES) and numerous food allergies. She also has a G-tube but eats orally as well, which challenges Brandt and Krya to expand their culinary creativity. Fortunately, big brother Austin provides great support to the whole family. Brandt’s service on Feeding Matters Family Advisory Council began in 2018 with volunteering as a Power of Two Coach following in 2019.
