Laura’s passion for herbalism, healing, and well-being is evident in her 20 + years of working with herbs and people.
She began her formal education with herbs at the Rocky Mountain Center of Botanical studies where she graduated in 2001 as a certified herbalist. In 2013 she graduated from Colorado State University with a bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences with a concentration in Botany.
In 2014, Laura co-founded the Equinox Center of Herbal Studies where she is the director and one of the primary teachers.
As an herbalist, Laura uses a variety of techniques to work with the clients’ well being.
In private consultations she works one on one to discover tools for personal wellness that best serve each person. She focuses on creating a safe space where the individual can explore spiritual, emotional and physical growth.
Laura loves coupling her herbal knowledge with her botanical expertise, and as a long time resident of the Front Range, she is extremely familiar with local flora and often hosts herb walks focusing on edible and medicinal uses of local plants. Furthermore, she often offers more intensive botany workshops and private plant identification consultations to teach others how deepen their knowledge of the plants.
