Kate is a plant lover, folk herbalist, herb gardener, medicine maker, botanical perfumer, flower essence practitioner, and a devoted believer in the cosmic healing powers of our wild allies. With an approach to herbal medicine deeply interwoven with honoring the plant spirits, she crafts plant medicine as a bridge to help connect people with the healing magic of the green world.

Kate has been joyfully studying and practicing plant medicine for the past twelve years. Some of her training includes the life-changing Roots program at the California School of Herbal Studies, as well as completing an advanced apprenticeship with the magical herbalist Rosemary Gladstar of Sage Mountain.

Plantfolk Apothecary was founded in 2010, and has since become an integral part of Kate’s own personal journey with the plants. On most days she can be found working in her herb gardens, formulating in the apothecary, sitting with the plants, hiking with her dogs Gaia and Lilikoi, or otherwise engaging in the magic of the Green. A native Vermonter, Kate currently resides in the mystical high desert lands of Taos, New Mexico.
