Meet our 2021-2022 Student Clinicians
Kerry is thrilled to announce that she is prepared to begin a career as a clinical herbalist through the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism. She will be taking on new clients this October and is excited to share her knowledge of both Nutrition and Herbalism with the world. Kerry earned a bachelor’s degree in nutrition and Dietetics in 2012, but she always felt a deep connection with our planet and felt that the nutrition path alone was not a full representation of the tools that we have available to promote health and vitality. In 2016 Kerry found her passion for herbalism through the Artemisia & Rue program. Kerry knew from that experience that plants and natural remedies were her life’s calling and she wanted to pursue a career in herbalism from that moment forward. With her bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and Dietetics and her passion for herbal medicines, Kerry hopes to bridge the gap between nutrition and herbalism with her clients and provide a holistic approach to health. Kerry’s favorite activities are rock climbing, backpacking, snowboarding, camping, hiking, biking and any other activity that allows her to feel in touch with our planet
Erin has been a Licensed Massage Therapist for the past 18 years. She has always loved helping people, and after years of hearing the woes of many of her clients, she desired to be able to help them in ways beyond her massage scope of practice. A common complaint she heard was their frustration at “not being listened to” when visiting their health care providers, a story that hit home for her as well. As an auto-immune patient, she has personally witnessed the limitations that allopathic medicine can provide. After years of not seeing the results promised, she began experimenting with herbs. Finally, she began to see positive changes in her health! Erin knew she wanted to explore how to guide others on a path to wellness which brought her to The Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism. Erin is currently a Certified Flower Essence Practitioner and has a particular interest in the mind/body connection and how it manifests in digestive health, muscle tension patterns and immunity. She would love the opportunity to explore how Flower Essences, Herbal Remedies and Nutrition Therapeutics can help you achieve better health!
Michelle Mansfield-Hom is a clinical herbalist, certified Bach flower essence practitioner, and a Maryland native (claimed land of Piscataway). She arrived at the land of Utes, Arapahos, & Cheyennes, also known as Colorado in 2016 and has found it to be home. For a year before that, Michelle gained invaluable respect for plants while WWOOFing on multiple farms across the country. Along the way, she discovered her love for herbalism as she had the privilege to work with herbs intimately, from growing them to using them as medicine. Michelle struggled with internal inflammation and chronic sinusitis. Using part intuition, part vitalist tradition, she leaned on herbs and holistic wellness to heal her bodymind. Michelle believes that anyone can steer their own body towards a thriving, vibrant natural state with a balance of herbalism, holistic nutrition, mindset, and lifestyle. She also offers educational herbal workshops in sign language. Michelle is Deaf, from both cultural and medical viewpoints, and fluent in ASL as it’s her first language. When Michelle isn’t seeing clients, she can be found wandering in the woods, hanging with her critters, witching around in the kitchen, tending to her medicinal herb garden, out riding the pow, or visiting farmers’ markets + local coffee shops.
Michelle values a wholeness approach to support her clients individual health needs, honoring their body, mind, and spirit. Her goal is to be an advocate for others in honing their intuition and taking action toward well-being through herbs, nutrition, and flower essences. She focuses on uncovering sources of dis-ease and gently working toward harmony. Michelle spent nearly ten years working as a pharmacist, predominately in the hospital setting. Her experience with western medicine both as a pharmacist and as a patient often left her feeling incomplete and frustrated. This has fueled her passion to be a voice to the gaps while also respecting and utilizing the advancements of the western system. Michelle is also a Biodynamic Breathwork & Trauma Release Facilitator and has over 200 hours of yoga teacher training. In her spare time, Michelle enjoys wondering through the woods, medicine making, and doing crossword puzzles.
