JILLIAN BAUMGARTNER, Contributing Editor
Jillian grew up in Southern California and trained as a classical ballet dancer throughout her adolescence. She studied psychology in Santa Barbara, California, and additionally film studies and theatre arts became a part of her educational repertoire. She developed a career in fashion merchandising and soon began styling under BCBG Maxazria, Lucky Brand, and the Santa Barbara Polo Club. Yoga has been a crucial aspect of Jillian’s young adult life, and she and several other yogis opened up the Westlake Village Lululemon in 2013. Jillian’s food and environmental sensitivities have been a catalyst in her health and wellness activism. She educates on an intimate level, with full transparency, and she is passionate about connecting with each reader as an individual.
CAITLIN HAMILTON, Contributing Editor
Caitlin Hamilton is a zoologist at heart and a science journalist by training. Although she hails from the rural and ruggedly beautiful Scottish Borders, she currently calls London her home. She works in the communication department of Cancer Research UK, and embraces all that the capital city has to offer, although she undeniably spends rather too much of her day in the infamous underground system.
An avid traveler, Caitlin has been lucky enough to travel, volunteer, and experience life in over 30 countries. She spent an unforgettable summer in Zimbabwe, where she made lifelong friends with CocoEco’s Managing Editor, Kelly Calagna.
