My entire life I have been dedicated to learning as much as possible about as much as possible! I carry this dynamic and exploratory attitude into my business as well. Growing up in the temperate rainforest that is Tongass National Park, in Juneau, Alaska, I have always had an affinity for exploring plants and their amazing qualities. During my undergraduate years at Wellesley College I studied ethnobotany, which laid the groundwork the development of Just Botanicals.

Just Botanicals is committed to using the most well-evidenced and thoroughly-researched ingredients when possible. I am also committed to conducting further research on new or local ingredients when possible.

In consideration of these goals, I am also committed to staying actively engaged in continued education. Currently, I am taking a course in Essential Oil Certification and I am also pusuing the advance Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation. I recently completed the Healing Response at the Institute of Oriental Medicine.
