Megan is the owner of MEGAN & CO. Herbal Apothecary and Clinic in Spirit Lake, Iowa. Megan’s path to herbalism was paved out of personal experience. As a child, she was diagnosed with epilepsy at age of 10. Most of her childhood was spent juggling different pharmaceuticals with the hopes of calming her seizures. By the time she reached her mid-twenties, she was looking for another path and that road was herbalism.

She attended the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism from 2014-2016. Through herbalism and nutrition She was able to heal herself, as she had never done before.Her personal experiences strengthened her and she soon became determined to share these methods with others.

Megan opened MEGAN & CO. in June of 2017 as a Certified Clinical Herbalist, a Certified Clinical Nutritionist, and Flower Essence Practitioner. It is her hope that the Apothecary will be able to spread herbal knowledge to rural America in a safe, constructive, and accessible manner.
