Description
Katya has a deep respect and passion for the natural world and the ongoing healing journey. Having experienced her own health challenges in her teenage years, and having to find balance throughout life, she can empathize with the health challenges many of us face at points in our lives. Having these experiences and seeing the connection time and again between physical health and mental, emotional, & spiritual states, has helped her to see health as part of a whole system. She formally studied Herbal Sciences at Bastyr University and has owned Herban Wellness since 2009.
