Bio

The focus of my nursing work and scholarship for 35 years is the practice of nurse-herbalism, integrative nursing, traditional medicine, and botanical self-care. Supported by award-winning historical research, translational botanical science expertise, and collaborations with nurses and indigenous leaders internationally, my work advancing the practice of the science and art of nurse-herbalism has been disseminated through publications, presentations, and community events on five continents. I designed and published three practice models on integrative nursing, health culture diplomacy, and precision botanical self-care that have contributed to global health transformation, policy reform, and wellness innovations. I have demonstrated leadership in furthering environment as a core value in nursing and am advancing a new educational model for advanced practice psychiatric mental health nursing.
