I have been interested in holistic healing for as long as I can remember, really. As an early teen, I began to self-study plant healing. My endeavors have become more "serious" through the years, leading me to attend a more formal education through Green Path Herb School. There, I had the honor of being mentored by Elaine Sheff and John Goigovich, as well as taking classes from Maria Noel Groves, Linda Black Elk, Mimi Hernandez, & Judith Poelarends.

I feel grateful for all of the knowledge that I've absorbed through the years. I also look forward to continuing my learning, as plants have so much to teach us! I am humbled by this path. I walk forward with the knowledge that I am both a teacher and a student. I am not a doctor, nor do I care to be called a healer. I believe that humans have an innate power to heal themselves. My goal is to serve as a plant match-maker. I will help you build bridges to access your own healing.
The products & services that I offer are created with intention. I use organic or home-grown plants (using organic practices) in my products. I rarely use wildcrafted ingredients, as I do not feel it is ethical to capitalize off of traditional lands, or to take too much medicine from communal space. I deeply care about our planet, & believe that it is our main source of healing. I also believe that healing with plants is our birthright; I hope to create a safe & inclusive space for everyone, but especially LGBTQ+ and BIPOC folx. I do my best to use ethically & sustainably harvested goods to create products. As a human, I know I can always do better. I am open to any insight or suggestions on this front.
