About Brooke

Brooke combines over 10 years of experience in herbalism, farming, farm to table cooking, mental health speaking, and entrepreneurship to bring a new energy and appraoch to holistic healing and wellness.

Her skillset encompasses the holistic being in compassion and understanding by centering her expertise on what we put in and on our bodies and how they can lead to emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual wellness.

These offerings can be customized entirely to the exact needs of an individual person, a community, or a retreat.

Retreat Offerings

Herbal Consultations

Herbalism is for everyone, but not all herbs are for everyone simply because they are good for a symptom.

These herbal consultations are valued at $160 for 60 minutes, and include discussions on a person's holistic wellness goals (from skincare to physiological health, to manifestation support), their general energetics and constitution, and lifestyle.

Once these things are determined along with the ailments and what would like to be resolved, specific herbs are selected and fine tuned for the specific person, NOT the symptom, so that the herbal formulas can help to treat the root cause.

Mother & Postpartum Specific

As a Mother, this brand was founded on my experience in pregnancy and postpartum and wanting all natural alternatives to self-care products that I love. In this offering, I share herbs as well as body care products specialized and tailored to the Mother.

All Natural Self-Care Products

I handcraft all natural skin, hair, and self-care products that are nourishing and beautiful on the skin, and great for our bodies and the environment. If you're looking to add something to gift bags or favors for your retreat guests, please do reach out to me!

Pop-Ups: Tea & Fragrance

These pop ups are great for fairs, galas, and conferences. Depending on what the community is looking for (herbs that support immunity, the nervous system and stress relief, digestive support, etc) herbs and natural fragrances are brought to the event so that guests can be a part of handcrafting their very own tea blends and fragrance roller oils.

Guests will learn about the different herbs and fragrances present and how they interact in and on the body, be guided toward which herbs would work best for them, and take home teas and roller oils that are customized for them.

Herbal Workshops

Whether you're looking for a workshop around wild medicinal foraging, medicine making, natural skin care crafting, introduction to holistic herbalism, or using herbs as a part of healing, I can customize a talk just for you and your guests.

Healing through Nature

As an herbalist, farmer, and nature-lover, Brooke shares the magic of nature with audiences in hopes they utilize it as a resource for healing. This is a presentation best done outside when the weather is nice.

Brooke will lead participants on a foraging walk where they will identify wild medicinal plants, and learn grounding techniques in nature.

If desired, a gardening workshop where participants can plant their own flowers with pots, seeds, and soil provided by Brooke will be present.

Custom Talks

Brooke has developed custom presentations, keynotes, and workshops over the years for different needs and desires. If you're looking for something special and customized, please let us know!

Workshops/Storytelling

Social Emotional Learning Through Storytelling

Brooke's keynote presentations tend to get kids inspired and motivated to start sharing their stories and discussing the challenging emotions that they've been dealing with.

In 2020, Brooke developed a curriculum that paired the 4 pillars of SEL with storytelling as a vehicle for understanding.

The 4 pillars are: Mindfulness, Emotional Management, Interpersonal Skills, and Responsible Decision Making. Storytelling is the 5th, so we can begin to understand how our own stories fit within those learning objectives.

In these workshops, Brooke goes over the 5 pillars of SEL, and how to begin sharing our own stories with those we know and those that we don't, so that we can build understanding, compassion, and resilience.

This is a great workshop for youth groups, after school programs, youth centered nonprofits, and other youth-focused groups.

  • JDI Tea & Fragrance Pop Up

    "I am still glowing from the event on Tuesday! Thank YOU for making it so special! Folks loved your offerings and I can't wait to keep you connected to the JDI community. PS: I LOVE the oils I purchased!"

  • MYM presentation

    “I just wanted to reach out and tell you how blown away I was by Brooke's presentation today. I received more positive feedback from students and faculty alike than I have on any other mental health programming I've brought in. She was relatable, personable, and most importantly, hopeful. Our Q&A was fantastic, and the line to meet with Brooke after the event was many students deep."

  • MYM Presentation: High School Student

    "I think it was very informative. Many young people likely appreciate Brooke as well as me because of how open and vulnerable she is to share her story in hopes of helping others. I can relate to some of her experiences which feels very validating but I think that it is still helpful for people who can't relate because it is giving them insight on how to support others. One thing I took away from her presentation was DBT. I've tried multiple different types of therapy before but I would definitely be interested in this and will look into it more. I'm very grateful for people like Brooke."

  • MYM Presentation: High School Student

    "I thought Brooke’s presentation was insightful because many high schoolers today deal with mental illness and most often are undetected from themselves and the information Brooke provided being her story can give other people the idea that maybe they are struggling with a mental illness and should seek help."

  • MYM presentation: School Counselor

    "Brooke was amazing and delivered such an impactful message! She truly is great at what she does! Ryan and I were talking and think she would be a great person to have come back and talk to other audiences as we continue to move forward in the process of impacting our entire school community. Brooke certainly set the bar exceedingly high from my perspective!"

  • MYM Presentation: Middle School Teacher

    "Thank you so much for presenting virtually to our students. The feedback from students and teachers has been nothing but positive. Your story really spoke to our school community and seemed to resonate with a lot of our students."
