Biography

My praxis integrates the rich tradition of Western Herbalism with movement and exercise therapies, clinical nutrition and functional medicine. I draw from the best of these fields while working to deconstruct the aspects of healthcare and its history that are colonialist, patriarchal, extractive, and otherwise problematic. Each day, I lay a brick in the foundation of a compassionate, preventative model of care that addresses the root cause, views the whole person within the unique context that is modern life, and holds that we can demand more from our health than simply the absence of disease. I am a chronic care girlie, and salutogenesis is the game. With a bottomless and enduring love for movement and an affinity for wild things, I nourish myself by salsa dancing, cooking GF treats, practicing mixed martial arts and searching the world for *glimmers* great and small.
