Caryn Sullivan is a wife, mother, writer, public speaker, former media executive, and cancer survivor who always finds a reason to smile.
An imperfect perfectionist, Caryn tirelessly seeks wholesome and reputable methods to improve her family’s overall health and well-being. With a storytelling-like style that’s easily consumable for the busy woman, her writing chronicles her enthusiastic search for a more-zen lifestyle.
As a longtime soap opera enthusiast and 17-plus year veteran of the sports and media industries, Caryn brings entertainment and great character to her daily life. She’s been seen dressed in a train costume while reading stories to her son’s class, leaving small notes behind to make her husband smile, and writing silly poems to motivate friends and co-workers.
A former Hostess Snowballs addict, Caryn now has a plant-based nutrition certification and a new-found love for green juices, avocados and hot yoga. She’s a regular contributor to HuffPost, Thrive Global and WTNH-TV News Channel 8 and has been seen on The Dr. Oz Show, HuffPost Live, Fox CT and News12 Connecticut as well as on her blog, PrettyWellness.com and YouTube channel. Caryn lives in Connecticut with her husband and son.
