In 2011 she trained at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, earning her Holistic Health Coach certification in 2012. In 2008 she was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and thus began her journey into learning about natural and alternative health. Once she regained her own health she wanted to help others do the same thing.
She is happiest when she is learning something, making/creating/building something, or when she is out in nature. The courses offered at The Human Path & Herbal Medics Academy bring this all together and she has been a “chronic student” for the past few years, taking many of the Scout, Off-Grid Engineering, Herbalism, and other classes. In 2019 she completed the Wilderness Herbal First Responder training and now completes our team as an instructor in the Apothecarist program & lead logistics coordinator for clinical outreach missions.
