I'm an herbalist and holistic educator fueled by a profound commitment to uplifting humanity through the transformative potential of plants.

Over a decade ago, I embarked on a social entrepreneurial journey founding House of Battles, a social impact agency focused on empowering entrepreneurs to drive positive change in behavior, policy, community development, and transformative thinking.

In collaboration with leading humanitarian brands like the American Heart Association, Chicago Urban League, Special Olympics, the National Coalition for the Homeless, and Harvard's Black Policy Conference, I dedicated myself to charitable giving strategies, providing sustenance to hundreds of women and children in poverty. Much of my success is indebted to the influence of mentoring relationships and community-centered cooperatives.

While serving in this capacity, I felt a calling to contribute more as a farmer and botanical business owner, prompting a career change. I delved into the study of horticulture, urban farming, and herbalism, reconnecting with my family's farming background in Mississippi. Inspired by ancestral practices lost to forced displacement, mass migration, and environmental racism, I embarked on a mission to restore a legacy.

Driven by my bond with the land, I trained as an apprentice in clinical and spiritual herbalism, educating and healing my family and local community through plant medicine and horticultural therapy. With insights gained from Master Herbalists, I began a healing journey, understanding the integration of my body with the environment and my spirit with emotions.

After over five years in the alternative health industry, my mother and I co-founded Roots + Fire Water Co., a passion project with a mission to create healthier homes infused with plant love. Our shop, born from a mother and daughter's love for plants, tea, self-care, and gardening, goes beyond the typical plant store.

Since opening, I've witnessed the transformative impact of plants on the vitality and health of our clients. Homes enriched with fresh air, herbal tea, plants, serene aromatherapy, and fresh produce can profoundly improve the well-being of any family. Rooted in our family's herbal recipes, we created trademarked Fire Water Teas. With my herbal expertise and ancestral teachings, we crafted two versions—infused with our proprietary blend and tropical fruit or solely our proprietary medicinal herb blend.

We believe that by nurturing a deeper love for plants, we can not only heal humanity but also fortify our connection with the planet, fostering a more sustainable environment. My ongoing mission is to increase access to plant medicine and organic food in food deserts across minority neighborhoods, envisioning a cooperative of rural and urban farmers working together to address plant supply chain challenges in the near future.
