About

Hi! I'm Melissa. I have spent the past umpteen years getting to where I am just to leap again into something so old to me and yet so new and exciting!

I dream of large secret gardens, filled with herbs to heal every wound and food to fuel our lives. Prairies and Kansas sunsets. A large kitchen where I can create herbal remedies and preserve the food we grow. And a life full of outdoor adventures and weekends camping!

I have worked in health care for many years. Starting from the ground up. From Nurses Aid to Registered Nurse. With each step I hoped for a change, I hoped the way the care was delivered could change. I hoped I could make a difference in the way we care for the patients that cross our paths.

Don't get me wrong, on all levels we, in the health care field, do make a difference. However, I have come to believe I've been called to make a change outside the confines of the popular health care system. 

Through the education of myself, my family and others on the use of herbs for health and well being, I believe I can make a change. There are so many important parts to preventative care and there are many wonderful educators out there that cover the many angles of self care. I, myself, have been called to herbalism.

I’ve spent the last 5 years starting my little family. I married my best friend’s brother. Who knew that older brother I had a crush on in third grade would turn out to be my soul mate! We have two beautiful boys that keep us on our toes!

I love to spend my time learning to live simply and frugally. As a family we're all learning to live a little simpler, a little closer to the land and a lot closer to God.
