I am a Traditional Western Herbalist, Wellness Coach, Ordained Shamanic Minister, and Educator based in the west metro of the Twin Cities, Minnesota. I take a heart-centered, whole-body, and whole-life approach that is centered around empowering people along their healing journey. I am available for private consultations and provide my herbal clients with handcrafted herbal products from plants I have sustainably harvested for my herbal apothecary.
I put my busy accounting career aside in 2011 to focus on the health and well-being of myself and my two boys. Inspired by the profound healing experienced by my family through various natural healing modalities, I made the transition to herbalism and wellness coaching. I love teaching interactive herbal and wellness classes that integrate all of the senses.
I received my training in herbalism from Twin Cities herbalists Lise Wolff and Erin Piorier and my wellness coaching certificate from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN). I studied flower essences with Martin Bulgerin and aromatherapy with Jodi Baglien. I am also a Reiki Master and a volunteer for Herbalists Without Borders (HWB). I am actively involved in promoting earth friendly practices in my community.
I look forward to working with you!
My herbal and wellness work is my soul's work. My calling. My sacred work. What I offer is soul level healing. When given the opportunity, our bodies have an innate ability to heal itself.
We, as humans, are one with the ecosystem of this Earth. When we heal ourselves, we heal the Earth. It is an amazing symbiotic relationship and reciprocity. The Earth and her abundance are waiting for us to tap into her gifts. Together, we can work to elevate to the next level in your journey. Choose the path that brings you to the next amazing evolution of yourself.
With honor, respect, and gratitude I do this Earth walk to share with you the gift of healing in whatever that may look for you at any given point in time.
“Knowledge that you love the Earth changes you,
activates you to defend and protect, and celebrate.
But when you feel that the Earth loves you in return,
that feeling transforms the relationship
from a one-way street into a sacred bond.”
I LOVE to create community. My involvement with volunteerism and activism allows me to be connected to citizens in my community. Grass roots efforts connect people to local, sustainable Earth minded practices.
I currently serve on the steering committee of an organic/natural food buying club. Natural Family Buying Club
I volunteer for my sons' school garden program. It brings me joy to see the kids joyfully connecting directly with dirt, the plants, and tasting the fresh organically grown vegetables.
I regularly attend monthly North Country Herbalist Guild meetings to continue to connect and learn from herbalists in the community.
I am an active member of Herbalists Without Borders. The organization brings together a global network of volunteers devoted to providing compassionate care to communities and countries in need impacted by natural disasters, violent conflicts, poverty, trauma and other access barriers to health and wellness.
I am also a co-founder of People for Pollinators - Golden Valley, MN. We see ourselves as "A voice for pollinator friendly practices in the City of Golden Valley, MN and a bridge to communication and connection".
