Much of the past decade she has spent living in different places and studying plants, ecology and craft, writing about the land, growing food and herbs, or honoring her wanderlust by traveling cross country in various incarnations.

She received a B. A. in Philosophy and Religious Studies in 2009 from Christopher Newport University in Virginia. For over a decade she has studied herbal medicine, ecology and botany with teachers like Rebecca Golden, Paul Strauss, Chip Carrol, Luke Learningdeer, Marc Williams among many others. She apprenticed with Rebecca Golden in Brattleboro, VT of Earth Angel Herbals in 2010 and interned with the United Plant Savers at the Goldenseal Sanctuary in Rutland, Ohio in 2012. She apprenticed with Juliet Blankespoor and attended the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine in Asheville, NC in 2013. She helped manage the gardens and vegetable CSA at Dancing Springs Farm outside of Asheville, NC from 2014-2016. She studied book arts and paper making at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina and with elder medieval bookbinder Jim Croft in rural Idaho. She has attended a handful of artist residencies and workshops including most recently Signal Fire’s Wide Open Studios in 2017. Her teaching over the years has included classes on hide tanning, plant ID, wild foods, medicine making, natural dyes, nutrition and gardening.
