I am a



Certified Herbalist in Ottawa, ON

My love for nature started at a very young age but didn’t manifest into a more personalized passion until I knew that my love for nature was also deeply rooted from my family tree and heritage.


Following my heart, I proceeded to learn more by studying Shamanic traditions and practices at the University of Ottawa with Antropologist professor Marie-Françoise GUÉDON. Anthropology and Ethnology brightened and opened my mind. The diversity and unique quality in every living thing on mother earth is a wisdom fully acquired by few and to learn and benefit from it, is the surface of the path I continue to walk.


Learning herbalism at The International Academy of Health Sciences with extremely knowledgeable, dedicated and inspiring teachers like Certified Herbalist Amber Westfall, and Master Nutritionist and Reflexologist Anna Varriano made studying and finally graduating, a fun yet most importantly rewarding experience.


Working with the medicine/herbs in accordance with sustainability, I have understood that what is truly free and given to us in this world has been taken so, without the respect and appreciation the earth deserves in return. In return, the importance of giving back is just as vital as giving thanks. This is a philosophy that is my consistent revolution, inspired by elders, teachers, fellow herbalists, permacurltualists, and other like minded individuals, and hopes to lead on the same teachings for future generations to come.

Herbal Walks

Herbal walks start mid June when things are really coming up and out to show their beauty. I take a group of people willing to do a 2 hour walk/hike in a nearby forest where you will not only get to learn how to identify plants, and how to harvest them, but also what  the herbs are useful for and how to use them for healing!


Each month there are more and new plants flowering and others going to seed, so the variety of herbs you will learn are numerous! The valuable information I give on these walks are beneficial till the end of your years and of course is a knowledge that welcomes anyone interested in knowing the healing plants in the local area easily available to us.


The price of a herbal walk can vary on the season and the number of people attending when organized for a specific group. Please contact me if that is something of interest to you,.. Otherwise I organize walks and post them on facebook, in cafe's and kijiji for people who don't necessarily want to be in a very large group.

You can find Best of Nature products at local fairs in Sudbury and Ottawa, ON.
