Hi there! I mentor highly-trained herbalists and nutritionists so that we can provide exceptional care for our communities. I've been in practice as a licensed nutritionist and herbalist since 2003, working in OB/Gyn offices, a fertility clinic and private practice.
I'm also a professor in the Department of Nutrition at the Maryland University of Integrative Health, where I teach physiology and pathophysiology. Both my teaching and my clinical work are grounded in practical, fun, and common-sense methods that help us understand our work and ourselves more fully.
My herbal training started in 2001, when I apprenticed with Monica Rude of Desert Woman Botanicals in Gila, NM. I then went to MUIH for an MS in Herbal Medicine, followed by a second MS from Georgetown in Physiology and Biophysics. I also have a Doctorate in Clinical Nutrition.
