My Story

I have been working with herbs for the last eight years. I love to grow them from seeds, nurture them, and then harvest what is needed for medicine for both myself and my family. That is one of my passions. The other is teaching others the importance of going back to nature for our medicinal needs. I believe that everyone should learn this ancient system because we don't know what the future holds. There is tranquility, peace, pride, and a healthy dose of respect when you start this journey with herbs. I like to inspire others and show them it is a journey worth taking. I not only like to teach, I like to learn myself. No matter how many years of experience you have in this field, there is always more to learn.  To top all of that, I get to help other people feel better emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
