"I have been studying herbal medicine for 8 years, with a particular interested for women's health. Incorporated in my practice are Goddess studies, a certification as a Community Herbalist from Moondance Botanicals, midwifery studies, birth-assistant trainings, traditional Mexhika healing and medicine practices, Western European herbal knowledge, Prenatal yoga, and Southwest herbal knowledge. Currently, I am an apprentice with Kalpulli Teocalli Ollin, studying curanderismo with CC Nava, and working towards a certification in INNATE Postpartum Care with Rachelle Garcia Saliga. I am only at the beginning of my journey; honored to have attained and remembered this wisdom and knowledge, as well as share it with my community."
