Greetings! I invite you to share my deep love and respect for nature, and my passion for everything herbal. I delight in teaching the ancient art and science of herbalism to help create a greater awareness and appreciation of the natural environment and the rich connection between plants and people.
I practice my craft in a quaint little 1940's cottage near the seaside town of Half Moon Bay, CA. Here I offer a variety of herbal classes and workshops specializing in a hands-on approach. Adjacent is my charming herb garden that serves as my living classroom, as do all the abundant natural surroundings that the Coastside has to offer. Whether hiking, gathering, cooking, making natural skin care products, learning about the use of herbs in women's health or pursuing a comprehensive study of herbology, you will find my teaching is both informative and creative.

As a child I loved helping my mother in the kitchen. She would set me up at the counter on a step stool so I could assist chopping nuts or any other chore she gave me and as I grew older, the job of preparing the family meals was handed over to me. As a teen my interest in health began and many years of cooking professionally has given me a foundation for the classes I offer with a focus on food as medicine.
