She is an inspired brewer of kitchen potions for wellness, miracles, and magic. She is a cis woman of mainly British ancestry, currently living in gratitude in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and traditional lands of the Mi’kmaq people.
Kristin has been studying and working with herbs for over 15 years, in the kitchen, in the forest, in the garden, and as medicine. She has studied western herbalism as well as plant spirit healing, with a number of different teachers.
