Since I was a child playing with the dandelions in our yard on Long Island in New York or helping my grandparents in the garden in Brooklyn, I have always felt a closeness to the plant world. As I grew so did my interest in the healing power of plants and natural remedies. Having served in the US Army for 8 years, along with 30 years working in the corporate world, I decided it was time for a change. I was empowered to take control of my failing health and make a total lifestyle change that included leaving my stressful job, changing my eating habits, and of course, adding in herbal remedies which turned my health around.
I enrolled and graduated from the Western Herbalism program at the Southwest Institute for Healing Arts in Tempe, Arizona along with the 100-hour Life Coaching program. In this fast-paced world, things change every day and there is always something new to learn. I continue to study under my mentor along with attending herbal workshops, conferences, and other various online courses and programs.
Creating Desert Moon Botanicals, my online apothecary and business is the culmination of a dream to be my own boss. Here I have created a platform so I can share my knowledge about herbal, holistic, and nutritional remedies with you. In this space, I will help educate you on different aspects of your health and wellbeing and allow you to take control of your own health.
As a Clinical Herbalist and Wellness Coach, I work together with you to navigate today's health challenges in a more natural way. Together, we use nutrition, lifestyle changes, along with customized herbal formulations to overcome the health challenges that today's fast-paced, fast-food world has created. I specialize and have helped clients overcome and manage conditions such as asthma, diabetes, thyroid health (Hashimoto’s, hypothyroid), chronic fatigue, anxiety, stress, high blood pressure, and daily immune challenges.
If I am not helping clients or working at Desert Sage Herbs, I am usually teaching classes and workshops which allows me to share my knowledge of herbal medicine. I have lived in Arizona for 25 years and love to teach about the diverse ecosystem of the Desert Southwest and the medicinal plants of the Sonoran Desert.
My mission is to empower you to take control of your health and help you to live a healthy and long life!
In Love & Health,
