Cured from an immune deficiency through herbalism at the age of ten, I became mesmerized by the power of plants and nature at a very young age. I spent all my spare time reading about plants, collecting plants, and learning from herbalists—as I gathered wild medicinals to make salves, ointments, and tinctures to create the family home-apothecary. A Cornell Plant Science major, I became passionate about ethnobotany. My Environmental Management Masters at Oxford enabled me to expand my toolbox and conduct primary agroforestry research— key to keeping ethnobotany alive today.
