At Sage Valley Herbs we wanted to create an environment where anyone could get involved in herbalism. No matter the religion, race, creed or demographic. Throughout time the Earth has provided for all of us. We love the history of herbalism throughout humanity.

I am a Clinical Herbalist and grower. What does that mean? I study the plants and their constituents (ingredients) and how those interact with the human body. I have a full time practice and I study how plant based compounds restore our bodies to homeostasis. I am a member of multiple groups where I am mentored and guided by licensed physicians and specialists in their field. I am also a mentor to those wanting to learn. I study Chinese, Indigenous, and Western Herbalism/Medicine. The cognitive connection I have with the plants is a just like any relationship, it blossoms with nurturing and time. As a grower I have special connection to the herbs we use and sell, as I have watched them grow from seeds. The truest from of herbalism is botany, chemistry, history, plant husbandry, and the desire to honor the plants in their highest form. , I can truly say I am grateful for the relationship with our Mother Earth. And all of the gifts she has given us.
I am the Founder and teacher/mentor at Fortress of Faith Adventures where people can experience hands on with regeneration practices. We are members of the OAA, TravelOK.com, certified organic grower, and work with many others in our community.
