Other contributors include Robin Roberts, Fran Drescher, Patti LuPone, Alice Hoffman, Sylvia McNair, Barbara Padilla, Marissa Jaret Winokur, and Liz Lange.
Prior to her work in plant-based nutrition, health and wellness, Caryn worked as an engineer in the semiconductor industry for 20 years.
Caryn is a classically trained singer and performs in opera and musicals in the United States and abroad. She has won two international voice competitions (France, South Africa).
Caryn lives with her partner Gary De Mattei who is the co-founder of Responsible Eating And Living. Together they created Hartglass & De Mattei, The Swingin’ Gourmets, the first vegan cabaret musical.
