The stats:

Educational background:

  • BA in Psychology, minor English from the University of Connecticut, 2012
  • Graduate of The Institute of Sustainable Nutrition, 2015
  • devotee to The New England Women’s Herbal Conference, 2014-ongoing
  • self studied in herbalism, cookery, and wellness/nutritional science since the healing of my hashimoto’s thyroditis, asthma, and other inflammatory conditions-2014

My love for this work blooms from a passion for plant medicine and the healing power of food and community. Over the course of my personal healing journey as well as my college studies,  I developed a fascination with the emotional connection to eating and the interconnectedness of body state and wellness to what nourishes us-be it food, behaviors, relationships, and how we choose to take care.

It is my goal to demonstrate that the kitchen is a place of empowerment. It is a space to develop intuition and a practice of self care that facilitates an awareness that crosses into all aspects of your life. Paying attention to tastes, appearance, aroma, and touch as you harvest + gather + process your medicine and food brings you into greater relationship with the world around you. You will begin to see how the needs of your body are reflected by the environment, and vice versa.

I hope to inspire confidence-to be efficient, resourceful and creative in how you move in the kitchen and in your daily life.

    Hello miss Emma, it’s your brother. I just wanted to let you know how excited I am for you that you went ahead and pursued one of your greatest talents. Cooking! Not only that but informing others on how to eat healthy and a different perspective on eating!

      Luke, you’re the coolest and kindest little brother a gal could ask for! Love you!

      Hi Jan!! Thank you so much for your love and support (as always). I often think of how you were such a source of inspiration for my opening myself up to holistic wellness and I am so grateful for that. I had the good fortune of having you in my life to encourage my self exploration and delving into this world. xoxo

    Hi Emma.. it’s been a long time since we frolicked on the shores of magnificent Wellfleet beaches! I enjoyed your poems and tips on soaking legumes, nuts and seeds. Do you recommend soaking shelled hazelnuts and walnuts too? I’ve heard of people doing this. I’m loosely following the Paleo food ethic with positive results losing weight and feeling stronger. I miss grains especially. Thanks
