Director, Founder, Instructor, Clinical Faculty
Clinical Herbalist and Nutritional Educator
Chris has always had a strong connection to plants and the natural world. For his earliest health and nature education, he is very grateful for his father and their countless hours spent walking and canoeing the fields, woods, rivers and mountains of upstate New York, and he is deeply indebted to his mother for giving him his earliest training in nutrition, as she prepared delicious, nutritious meals for their large family, never taking a day off.
Since then Chris has been blessed to have the opportunity to continue his education with amazing health experts throughout the country, and on his journeys in India, Nepal and China.

He counts among his teachers the Physiomedicalists, and Eclectic doctors, Sages, Seers, Rishis, Wise Woman, and Indigenous Healers of the Mediterranean, Middle East, Asia, and the Americas.
