Education takes many guises in my work. I am a faculty member of Betonica teaching materia medica and herbal therapeutics in the professional medical herbalist training programme. I write and deliver training, both professional and lay classes for the Herbal Academy.
In industry I am the sole herbal advisor toTwinings International where I work with the New Product Development team as well as the US, UK and Australian teams. I also sit on the expert panel for The Food People meeting high street brands and advising on new markets and harnessing the power of plants in their products and I have been a member of the Potters Advisory Board and a consultant for Nexus PR.
I have long been a supporter of Salem International and made a documentary at their project in Uganda where I helped to fundraise and advised on the medicinal herb garden and I am also an adviser to Discover an NGO dedicated to training healthworkers in Africa to teach safe, natural medicine in rural communities.
More informally, I have delivered talks, workshops and other herbal events in the UK, Germany, Russia and most recently in Italy and Uganda.
Got an idea?
I love to get out and meet people and I always learn something new when I do. If you have a project in mind that you would like to talk through with me please get in touch. Travel throughout the UK and internationally is welcomed depending on my availability.
