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.
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?
