ABOUT

My name is Jaide, that's me in the cabbage patch - Thank you for being here

I am a Clinical Herbalist, Birth & Postpartum Doula, Embodiment Doula,Yogi, Artist & Writer; with a passion for finding beauty in this life. (mostly in Nature)

I began walking this path over a decade ago, when I moved from my hometown in Maryland to Colorado, for University; where I first encountered Hippies! and Yoga! Through my yoga practice, now 11 years in the making; I cleared my energetic body, which lead me towards a life focused on healing...It seems as if opportunity for growth came knocking thereafter- I attended a Birth Doula training, a 200 hr + YTT, a 90 hr + Prenatal YTT, all within a year of each other.

When I moved back East in 2015; I was called to work with Plant Medicine. Gardening, Farming, and working at an Herb Shop, while still teaching yoga and attending births. I took a hiatus from this work in 2016, for an 11 month intensive program, in which I graduated with a diploma in Advanced Clinical Herbalism, and my life has never been the same...

 

Since then; I have over 2,000+ hours of Clinical Herbal work under my belt, and continue to serve my community with herbs, diet/lifestlye coaching, yoga, and birth work.

I love wildcrafting/medicine making, and have small batch medicines, available in my online shop

I'm passionate about sharing my passions; if you have any questions about myself, my practice, or how you can benefit from natural therapies, please reach out!
