KRISTY began her journey as an herbalist and wellness coach in 2009, when she completed a holistic health coach training through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and began a two-year herbal medicine apprenticeship with Robin Rose Bennett (Susun Weed’s Wise Woman healing lineage). Through Robin she learned to see magic and spirit in the world around her again, in addition to connecting with the gifts of common plants, ancient healing traditions, and intuitive wisdom.
