Kerry Carlson

Kerry Carlson of Coconut Cloud
 

Founder & President

  • How did you come up with the idea? As a gluten free, dairy free consumer, I was frustrated with my creamer choices whenever I traveled and I thought to myself, why isn't there a Good For You dried creamer on the market and voila, a business idea was born! I literally searched the world for the best tasting, vegan coconut milk powder I could find and landed on Thailand which we beleive has the best tasting coconuts on the planet.

  • What is your favorite part about your job? Creating new, health focused products that are missing in the market place. Everywhere I go I end up saying to myself "now there is a another business opportunity" - great ideas are all around us and if you have an idea, I encourage you to go for it. Another part of my job that I love is empowering women to have it all, whatever that means for them. It could mean working from home and toggling your time as a working mother or it could mean coming up with a new idea and turning it into a great business idea. I love surrounding myself with super smart motivated people - when you do this, it does not really feel like work.

  • What are you doing when you’re not working? I love spending time with my family. I also love cycling and traveling to see nature...I feel like our world is changing and I want to see as much nature as I can while it is still here.
