       I got started in the health food industry in 1998, when I helped start a natural foods store and managed it for 5 years. In 2002, I completed a course through The American Herbal Institute becoming a Certified Modern Herbalist. I've always had a passion for plants. Then in May of 2002, I completed a PDC or Permaculture Design Course offered at Tierra Learning Center. I then got married to my amazing husband and started a family. I soon gave birth to my daughter in 2004, who is an thoughtful, healthy and creative person. In 2011, I completed the Kamana Naturalist Training Program through Wilderness Awareness School, Duvall, WA. I then moved to the Methow Valley in 2013, and have been settling in and creating our Permaculture gardens, and raising our daughter in a holistic way. My passion for healthy living and the rising health crisis, lead me to study at the Institute for Integrated Nutrition 2016/17. And here I am now, in service to the people, to do what I can to help.

MY Mission

     I strive to get people out of the hospital, and into the kitchen. I want people to get excited about taking back their health and getting in the driver's seat. Our culture has become so unhealthy in so many ways, I see nothing else to do but work to change that one person at a time. Yes, Health & wellness can be contagious too! My vision for the future is to cultivate wellness and abundance for people and planet. The time is now! What are you waiting for?

Food is not just calories, it is information!
