If you’re like me and love “behind the scenes” content, you’re in for a treat today! We’re pulling back the curtain to look at what it’s like to provide community support here at Herbs With Rosalee. 

My guest today is our Student Services Coordinator, Karin Rose. As a person who loves to interact with students and the herbal community, Karin answers emails, direct messages through social media, YouTube comments and more. She also supports the students enrolled in our online courses.

Besides being the only extrovert on the team and a super-gracious, helpful-from-the-heart person, Karin is also an experienced herbalist and aromatherapist in her own right. I have no doubt you’re going to love her as much as we do here at Herbs with Rosalee!

After listening in, you’ll know:

► Why nature connection, community and practical learning in the kitchen are so important to growing your roots as an herbalist

► Some of the challenges and rewards of running an herbal medicine program

► How cultivating a practice of gratitude can enhance your learning experience and personal growth in herbalism

► Lots of behind-the-scenes tidbits like what Karin wishes people already knew about herbalism and how we respond when people are mean

► and so much more…

For those of you who don’t already know her, Karin Rose lives in sunny San Diego. She is an herbalist and aromatherapist, and has a business degree and years of leadership training. Her herbal training includes dozens of herbal classes and conferences with a variety of teachers, including the two-year Herbal Medicine for Women professional program.

I'm delighted to share our conversation with you today!
