About Our Team
My path to herbs started with an interest in environmental conservation and a calling as an acupuncturist. For ten years, I have been practicing acupuncture and chinese herbal medicine. I have been a humble observer and a grateful facilitator. The herbs are so generous. Their teaching and healing, so eloquent.
Last summer, I began wildcrafting Artemesia sucksdorfii to make organic moxa for my acupuncture clinic. My experience getting to know that plant and the incredible impact of it's medicine inspired me in my mission to bring people herbs!
The play and delight of working with other herbalists, loving the people in my local neighborhood and the plants in our back yards has brought great inspiration to my life. Creating a bridge that bonds plants with people, is my joy and my gift.
I hope that this site will bring fun, peace, and healing to us all.
bring people herbs!
