Katie Vaccaro trained under American Herbalist Guild herbalists Lupo Passero and David Winston in traditional herbalism and clinical herbal medicine. Her personal journey with plants as medicine started while working as trail staff for a primitive wilderness-based drug and alcohol rehab in southern Utah, learning about the abundance of useful and medicinal plants in such a stark environment. But it wasn’t until her formal study, years later, that she fell in love with the beauty of plants and the process of creating as a part of medicine and wellness. Katie is convinced that good healthcare should start with education, and she loves helping others get started on their journey of investing in their own health and making medicine for themselves.
