Hi! I’m Renee, a nature- and people- lover in the Pacific northwest. I’m on a quest to improve health outcomes, pursuing questions like:
How does our relationship with nature affect our health?
How do plants and mushrooms support our well being? Can we amplify this?
What is the future of medicine and healthcare?
I educate about the wild world, including the use of plants and mushrooms as components of a healthy lifestyle. It’s fulfilling to work on an individual basis—not only to bear witness to deep transformation, but because I’ve also walked the path from serious illness to wellness.
I’m based in Olympia, WA–land traditionally inhabited by indigenous nations including the Nisqually, Chehalis, and Squaxin. I’m grateful to indigenous peoples worldwide who have stewarded the land for millennia, and who have developed and tended the foods and medicines that nourish all of us.
