Registrar and Head of Membership Committee

Hello AHA Members! I have been a practicing herbalist since 2001, with a focus on trauma recovery, archetypes, shadow work and psychospiritual healing. I am honoured to be in my first volunteer term as a board member, taking over the Registrar role, after helping out in 2019 on the Membership Committee for 8 months prior to being elected to the board. It’s exciting to be part of this new dynamic board that has an enthusiastic, diverse skill-set which I feel will take the AHA to the next level! I look forward to supporting students and professional herbalists through this new board’s vision and strategy, along with connecting with all types of members at various events such as the Alberta Herb Gathering and the annual AGM.

I am very passionate about empowering others, medicinal plant conservation, permaculture and creating botanical products. On my personal time you will find me at my farm north of Cochrane, AB, puttering in my botanical sanctuary garden, and hanging out with my animal family of 2 dogs, 2 horses, 4 pygmy goats and 7 chickens! If you have any educational, membership or practicum questions, or simply want to reach out for support please email me at:
