“Words can’t express how happy I am to have Michelle as part of our team. She is a solid, well-trained herbalist, a powerful force for change out there in the world and a kind and loving woman. Michelle ventured with me to Mexico in 2006 to work with Estela Roman and how lucky we all are that her work with Estela continues.
