About Brynn:

     Brynn has been a student of herbs for her whole life, inspired by the hearty plants in the rocky mountains where she lived as a child, and overcome with wonder at the bounty of lush plant life when she moved here to the Pacific Northwest.  She has been studying herbalism and making medicines for herself and her family as a hobby for almost 25 years.  She is on the path of making herbalism a more professional part of her life, having finished an internship at, and joining the Herb Shoppe family, and is currently a student at The School of Evolutionary Herbalism and Sage Mountain Botanical Sanctuary.
