About Carolina

Carolina, our Senior Manager and Nutritionist has been with Sidekim for over 3 years. She has expert skills in plant-based, raw, vegan cooking. The rest of us carnivores have no idea what that means, but we are concerned that if she eats one more vegetable, chives might start growing out of her ears. She dreams of one day riding an elephant through the tropics while feasting on varietals of avocados. Carolina is a certified Mat and Pilates Reformer instructor and holds a BS in Nutritional Food Science from Simmons College.
