I have been working with Herbs and studying Botany since my late teens, while attending Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Since graduating in 1992 with a BS in Biology I continued my studies in Herbal Medicine and Horticulture. In 1998-1999 I attended a Herbal Certification Course at Highline Community College, studying under Ayuvedic Herbalist Karta Parkh Singh Khalsa.
From 2010 - 2017 I was Staff Herbalist at Ubi's-Ubiquitous Journey-an Herb, Tea & Spice Shop in Tacoma, WA. I gained tremendous amount of experience creating custom blends for clients and developing my line of supplements, teas & tinctures.
My personal goals were to establish a business where I produce herbal products, ebooks, online courses and train the next generation of well-rounded, educated Herbalists. I am proud to finally see these goals coming into reality with upcoming Ebooks and Herbal Elements Academy to lauch Fall 2021 and online Spring 2020! Currently I teach in person classes at Pierce College & SPSCC in the Olympia, WA area.
Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda” for short) is one of the world's oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. It's based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. I blend these concepts with my Reiki training (Master/Teacher level 1998), Chakra Connections energetics, Nutritional Support and Herbal Medicine.
