For nearly a decade, I have nourished plants from seed, watched soil transform, delighted in the shifting seasons, and reveled in the fruits of the bountiful garden. But a decade is a blink of an eye in Deep Time – and I will only glean whatever wisdom I am blessed to receive in my short human life. My prayer is that I am a good ancestor, that I am able to bring the reminder of this love back to even just a few humans.
I am an Herbalist, Practitioner of sacred ceremony, and a Woman of the Earth. Always having a strong connection with my spirituality and individuality have allowed me to connect with herbal medicine and sacred ceremony on this wonderful life journey.
The intention of my work and way of life is to help others as well as myself grow and maintain optimal wellness by nourishing the mind, body and spirit through herbal medicine, sacred ceremony and meditation…

I grew up living and communing with the land, excitedly awaiting the seasonal fruits and pretending that I lived in a magic garden…

I’m a maker of many things, including herbal remedies, which I’ve been studying for about a decade now. I’m interested in how multi-dimensional humans are, which means that medicine and healing look different for every single one of us. My hope is to help folks feel safe and well in their earthly bodies, whatever form that help takes.
