Kaleigh is a clinical herbalist, a restoration ecologist and an educator.
I work at the intersection of human & environmental health. In my herbal practice, I matchmake people with plant medicines and work with clients to support them in meeting their holistic health goals.
I weave an understanding of physiology, processes of disease and disharmonies, constitutional assessment, plant chemistry and herbal–medication interactions with client-centered, trauma informed care.
In the years I have been studying herbal medicine my teachers have included Savayda Jarone, RHP, CHT, MNIMH, 7Song, RH(AHG), Ember Peters, RHP (HANS), Stascha Stahl, Vilde Chaya Fenster-Ehrlich and currently Colleen Emery, Cl.H, RHT (BCHA).
While I was a student at the Northeast School of Botanical Medicine, I completed clinical mentorship with 7Song at the Ithaca Free Clinic, working alongside
an integrative health team supporting community members at no-cost.
I completed a Graduate Certificate in Ecosystem Restoration at Niagara College which built my skills in working with the ecosystem, soil and water to support harmed and degraded landscapes move towards repair.
I know human and environmental health to be inseparable and see it as a big honour and responsibility as a herbalist to support the repair, recovery and resilience of the land. I work in deep reverence for the living world around me and with a strong commitment to dismantling the structures that degrade, displace and destroy the land and water.
I am a settler of Scottish ancestry working in Hamilton, ON, available to collaborate in person or virtually.
