About Us: YUMs Co-Founders

Carolina Pichardo YUM

Carolina Pichardo is a proud YUM to her beautiful, energetic daughter, Lyanna (a.k.a. Lulu). She’s been an editor and writer for several trade publications, newsletters and websites, such as Tea & Coffee Trade Journal, Working Mother Magazine,, and When she isn’t working on her writing or reading, Carolina could be found playing in the park with her daughter, hula-hooping, or catching up on her tweets. She lives (true YUM-style) in the loudness that is Manhattan, New York with her daughter, dog and two turtles, Ying and Yang, and babydaddy, Luis.

Mary Targia YUM

Mary Targia Almonte is a dedicated YUM to her vivacious 10-year-old daughter, Briari, and super energetic 2-year-old son, Alonso.  When she isn’t on mommy duty, and betwixt and between mommy meltdowns, she moonlights as a digital marketing consultant for her self-owned company, MT Digital Inc., which she recently started after working on Madison Avenue for several years. She enjoys pretty much everything, but doesn’t get much time to indulge in the two minutes of spare time that she gets each day. However, she wouldn’t have it any other way.  She resides in the good ol’ city of Staten Island, New York with her daughter, son and husband, Edward.
