She began her self-studies in herbalism as a teenager, and in 2015, started formal training with Gigi Stafne of Green Wisdom School of Natural and Botanical Medicine. With over 10 years of experience in the horticulture field, she is now a certified Master Herbalist who wants to use her knowledge of herbs to help others.
