Eleos is my calling. As an herbalist, I get to use the plants God created to help people.

 

I am trained in multiple herbal traditions. As a 2014 graduate of the North American School of Clinical Herbalism, I am a Master Herbalist in the Western Folk Herbalism tradition. I have built on that foundation with more than six years of formal training in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as Western herbalism, with the East-West School of Planetary Herbology (EWSPH). As a 2021 graduate of that program, I am currently working towards 400 clinical hours in order to earn my EWCH (East-West Clinical Herbalist) credential, which is the highest designation one can earn from this prestigious school. Once I have completed those hours, I will be eligible for full membership in the professional society for herbalists practicing in North America, the American Herbalists Guild (AHG).

 

In January of 2021, I was invited by Dr. Michael Tierra, founder of the EWSPH, to be a practitioner for the East-West Free Clinic in Santa Cruz, CA. The Free Clinic has been serving underprivileged members of that community for 16 years. I see my clients virtually twice a month, and have come to love my time with them, working to serve them well as I meet their unique health challenges.

 

My education is ongoing. I regularly take part in webinars, online and in-person classes, and seminars from esteemed herbalists, including:

 

Rosalee de la Foret

Charis Lindrooth

Paul Bergner

Miles Coleman

K.P. Khalsa

 

While I don’t currently specialize in any one field, I do have a heart for women’s issues, and for people living with mental illnesses.
