Ann Crile Esselstyn


Ann Crile Esselstyn has been called "the Julia Child of plant-based-cooking." She was an award-winning English teacher for 27 years, all while juggling raising four children, coaching, and figuring out how to cook delicious and appealing plant-based, oil-free food. Ann's singular focus is on creating recipes to prevent and reverse heart disease, and she collaborates with her husband Dr. Caldwell B Esselstyn Jr. in counseling patients. Ann and her daughter, Jane, also feature heart-healthy recipes on their YouTube channel. Ann graduated from Smith College and received a master's in education from Wheelock College. She lives in Cleveland, Ohio, next door to Jane.
