Caryn Dugan, Spirited Trailblazer
Our client and friend, Caryn Dugan, is one of the most optimistic and tenacious individuals we’ve ever met. Caryn is all about being the first to bring plant-based to a larger community. In 2008, she was motivated to start STL Veg Girl after losing her father to cancer and receiving her own cancer diagnosis shortly after. She has taught the first Forks Over Knives “Community” program to sold out audiences and created St. Louis’ first Plant-based Nutrition Summit, featuring world-renowned experts. But Caryn’s biggest first began a year ago when she created the nation’s first plant-based nutrition, culinary and lifestyle education center – The Center for Plant-Based Living (CPBL).
