Lori began her journey almost a decade ago, creating herbal concoctions and magic in her kitchen for friends and families. She began her herbal studies attending local herbal classes but decided she wanted more. She enrolled in Rosemary Gladstar's The Science and Art of Herbalism course, which she is currently still enrolled in. She is also a graduate of the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine's Foraging Course. She has also taken One Willow Apothecary's Intuitive Plant Medicine Course and currently enrolled in One Willow's Pussy Portal Journey. As a traditional herbalist, she has made Appalachia her home. These old stones and plant spirits sing in her heart, and it is her hope that she can translate the wisdom of Appalachia into her medicine!
