Krista is a Medical Herbalist in private practice in Fernwood Square in Victoria, BC. Krista balances her private practice as a faculty member at Pacific Rim College, teaching courses in herbal medicine and medicine making, along with supervising clinical training. Her mission with her practice is to teach women to love and adore their bodies, address societal norms of body awareness and educate ways to shift reproductive issues with the use of herbs, diet and supplements.
Krista is passionate about medicine making and has a full dispensary created 95% from herbs she has grown or from tinctures she has made herself from either percolations or macerations. Education, medicine-making, and herb growing along with women’s health are strong passions for Krista. Krista has focused her continuing education within women’s health with herbal mentors such as Aviva Romm, as well as Fertility Symposiums and Women’s Health conferences. Krista had offered over the course of two years a popular women’s health workshop series titled “Moon Goddess – Women’s Knowledge of Menstruation and Ovulation” teaching over 75 women about their menstrual cycles and how to incorporate Herbal Medicine to address common reproductive pathologies. Krista has spoken at the Kootenay Herb Conference in 2016 on Menstrual Cycle Charting and Herbal Medicine and is planning to offer a combined workshop with her inspiring mentor Bev Maya in the near future.
Krista maintains a professional membership with the Canadian Herbalists Association of BC (CHA of BC) and is actively involved with this organization as a member of the Board of Directors. She is also actively involved in the People’s Apothecary, a community Herbal Medicine garden located in Quadra Village.
