Caroline WimberlyCaroline Wimberly is a Program Associate at Brighter Green. She began her work at Brighter Green as an intern in February 2011. She graduated from Duke University in 2007 with an AB in Art History and minors in Psychology and Religion. She moved to New York City in 2008 to attend the French Culinary Institute, not only to strengthen her culinary skills, but also to learn about the food industry. She also worked for a year as the event planner at Artisanal Bistro. While she (mostly) enjoyed working in the restaurant industry, she is devoted to animal welfare issues, as well as sustainable agricultural practices and fair food pricing. Caroline has attended COP22 and COP23 on behalf of Brighter Green, leading conversations and facilitating dialogue about animal agriculture’s role in climate change and connecting with partners to build larger momentum for policy action. She has worked on the post-production of two documentaries, What’s for Dinner? and Six Years On, as well as other short videos, and has coordinated the China Program since its official beginning in 2014. Outside of the office, she dabbles in green home renovations and interior design, impact investing, and local activism. She hopes to encourage more people to adopt a whole foods, plant-based diet, as well as educate people about the animal agriculture industry.
