About Jen

HERBALIST | COMMUNITY HEALER

I have always heard the call of the plants, nature, all of it. When I was a kid we spent all day and into the evenings outside building forts, sweeping dirt, singing with the stream. My dad always had a big garden and we always were helping, weeding. If only I knew then what I know now. Herbalism and communicating with nature was always in me – it just all came naturally, the sunshine was my medicine for sure.

I have worked on farms, from a small annual flower company (I loved that job!) to a small local place called Baltimore Resources & Voices Of Women in 1991. Those experiences opened me up to many alternative healing practices. Through landscaping, working in the dirt, and by luck, working with a naturopathic doctor in Reisterstown (I dare say 1996) everything fell into place. In addition to those experiences, I worked with children from ages 6 weeks to 10th grade in the class room and after-school. I was so fortunate to have an amazing mentor, working with kids made me really listen and aided my already enthusiastic cheer leading personality.

I opened a small stand 12 years ago, after doing the festival & farmers market circuit, at Mill Valley Garden Center in Remington. So fortunate to have that opportunity – not a huge overhead which allowed me to grow at my own speed. Then I moved into Falkenhan’s Hardware Store on the 2nd floor in a small office space. Word of mouth really is the best. After two years being there I opened a storefront across the street (where I am today), opened for business on October 11, 2012, and we have been riding the herbal wave since then.
