Now a resident of the East Bay oak woodlands, I was raised in the ridge tops of the Santa Cruz Mountains before moving north to Humboldt County for nine years. There I earned a B.S. in Biology with a focus in Applied Botany at Humboldt State University and studied traditional herbal medicine at the Northwest School for Botanical Studies and the Northwest Institute of Ayurveda. Prior to joining the team at Native Here Nursery, I instructed students in botany and herbal medicine making at the Northwest School for Botanical Studies and was involved with a variety of organic farms and herbal apothecaries in the Arcata area, including Redwood Roots Farm, Humboldt Herbals, the MASHH Clinic Collective, and Alpine Meadow Botanicals. I am thrilled to join the team at Native Here Nursery and excited to share my love of plants with the East Bay community.
