"Our food should be our medicine and our medicine should be our food" - Hippocrates
If you're here you've already started your journey in holistic healing. Taking the initiative to invest in yourself is the first step towards healing your mind, body, and spirit. Figuring out where and how to start this journey can become overwhelming, trust me I know! It's my goal to help you along the way with recommending, guiding, educating, and supporting your healing journey. I combine holistic and alternative practices paired with my extensive training in western healthcare.

I have over 15 years of mental health training and experience since starting my journey at the age of 21 working in the Correctional Rehabilitation Facility. I earned my Masters degree in Administrative Nursing and hold my Board Certified Advance Holistic Nurse credential. Over the last decade my journey has lead me into specialties consisting of Acute Behavioral Health, School Nursing, Telemetry and ICU, Labor and Delivery, and I ended my involvement with acute care in nurse management with one of the best known health care organizations in the nation.
As an Advance Holistic Nurse I'm dedicated to offering whole person care to patients in need. Rather than treating a specific issue, I look at the patient from a different perspective and together with my patient, examine their lifestyle to develop a plan on how to improve their overall health and wellness. By encouraging self-care, providing tools and education, I empower my patients to find new ways to maintain their health and foster a stronger connection to their mind, body, and spirit through a variety of holistic wellness-based practices.
You are what you eat! So eat good! I believe in the power of a plant based diet and we are living proof of the amazing benefits it provides. Since our plant based journey started over 2 years ago our physical, mental, and spiritual wellness has excelled. The universe guided me right into our 3 acre property where Mesquite Garden was founded and our homesteading journey began. I now grow, harvest, and preserve our own food and medicine and love teaching others how to do the same.
Herbalism is the study and application of medicinal plants. I believe the universe is constantly communicating with us and if we just slowed down and listened many of the answers we're looking for are right in front of us. Walk outside, see a bunch of weeds? Chances are they're medicinal and provide a remedy you actually need. My path into herbalism is simple, I suffered severely from migraines since I was a teenager. I've tried every medication made for it and none of them worked, if anything made me worse. Finally, in desperation, I turned to one very magical fungi spirit who not only diminished the severity of my migraines but opened up my true souls purpose to just how I'm meant to help others heal. My astonishment turned to curiosity and I dove into nurse herbalism and began applying plant medicine in my daily life, for my family, and within my holistic practice.
In addition to my holistic health services I am always finding ways to get our kids involved. They are the future and sadly basic skills are not taught in the public school system.
Throughout the year I hold kid focused workshops surrounding gardening, energy, emotional wellness, meditation, sound healings, arts & crafts and more.
