Monica developed a curiosity and love for herbalism 10 years ago as a result of successfully using herbs to address health issues in her own life. After completing an apprenticeship program with Green Wisdom Herbal Studies her thirst for a deeper understanding of plant medicine led her to attend the California School of Herbal Studies’s Community Herbalist program in Forestville, CA where she learned about growing herbs, making herbal medicines, and supporting others in their quest for better health. Becoming a Sales Rep in the Natural Products industry felt like a great way to put her natural health knowledge to work while exploring health food stores throughout the country (one of her favorite pastimes). Monica grew up in Southern California and now lives in Sonoma County, she spent a year and half in Florida and vows never to leave California again as she’s a California girl through and through.
