About Me

Welcome! to the ElixirMixir

After spending 25 years in Corporate America I decided there was something more meaningful than sitting in an office cubicle – I decided to get out and help people help themselves.  No matter what walk of life, everyone matters.

I have always been interested in Health and Nutrition, even when doing and eating things that were not healthy.  In 2008 I was given the opportunity to start over and follow my true life path of Herbalism and Complementary Life Style modalities.  This has taken me from the rolling hills and fast pace of New Jersey to the beautiful deserts of Arizona, the majestic mountains of Colorado and now to the forest of Northern California.    Each step of the way has been a learning experience that I will never forget.  While I chose to follow my true path a little later in life I have realized that this is just the beginning and if you choose, it can be a fresh beginning for you too.

I currently have over 2,000 hours in Herbalism and Nutrition, that has enabled me to make conscientious decisions regarding Holistic Health and Life.

Currently residing in the Sierra Nevada Foothills in Grass Valley, CA.   By Appointment Only:  Acorn School of Herbal Medicine,  154 Hughes Road Suite 10, Grass Valley CA 95945
