Katja & Ryn co-founded the CommonWealth Center for Holistic Herbalism in 2010. They see clients for individual consultations, and together they offer Foundational, Advanced, and Clinical herbalism programs both in-person and online. They also teach at national herbal conferences, including the American Herbalists Guild Symposium, the Traditions in Western Herbalism Conference, IM4US, and Boston's own Herbstalk. Articles by Ryn and Katja have appeared in the AHG Journal, the Journal of the Northeast Herbal Association, and Plant Healer Magazine. They are trained as street medics and Wilderness First Responders, and collaborate with peers from around the country to bring herbalism to communities impacted by natural and man-made disasters.
