About your Teacher:

I am a certified Herbalist and soon to be Certified Holistic Nutritionist. My passion for all things food led me down the path of fermentation. I learned how to ferment by going to workshops and through years of experience and experimentation. I’ve made every mistake and have tried a variety of techniques that I am eager to share with you! Most recently, I was accepted into a coveted mentorship program with fermented food guru Sandor Katz (Sandorkraut)! I am passionate about giving people the information and skills so they can take control of their health and nutrition – simply and effectively.
