About Heather

heatherheadshots(700px)Heather has been a clinical herbalist since 2008 and a professional member of  the American Herbalist Guild since 2012. She holds a master’s degree in education from the University of Virginia, which makes teaching an especially comfortable niche.

Heather’s practice is a very eclectic mix of the energetic aspects of traditional Western Herbalism, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda combined with the Bioenergetics of Qest4 technology. She’s dedicated to supporting you on your healing journey with individualized care as you move toward optimal well-being!

She serves as Herbal Education Director and Senior consultant at The Elderberry Community Herbs and Healing, Charlottesville’s first FDA registered herbal apothecary where her Heather’s Herbals office is located as well.  The Elderberry’s abundantly stocked apothecary and bright herb shop provide the ideal environment for her herbal coaching sessions where she guides clients to better health with customized diet/lifestyle strategies, herbs, and bioenergetic imprint drops.

Most of her teaching takes place in Charlottesville, VA where she’s on the faculty of Sacred Plant Traditions Center for Herbal Studies teaching part of both the Foundations and Clinic I program. She’s also an adjunct instructor at West Virginia University where she teaches herbalism and folk medicine in the division of Forestry and Natural Resources. One of her greatest joys is to support the growth and understanding of herbalism in the Charlottesville community and beyond!
