Healing Musculoskeletal Injury with Maggie (Clinical Herbal Series)
Our skeleton holds our shape but it’s our muscles that make us dance. In this class, we will explore the anatomy and physiology of the musculoskeletal system, discuss potential injury, and how Maggie has used this information to recover. Whether it’s recovery from a long hike or more acute from straining in your garden you will take away practical information to feel better. As a marathon runner, Maggie learned the value of nutrients when she experienced a stress fracture, as a yoga practitioner the importance of form with a back injury, as an herbalist she will share her experiences in recovery and body support practices.
This program will not cover basic herbal medicine making and assumes students have completed a beginner level of herbal education.

Maggie is an herbalist and educator in Central Florida. She comes from a large family where chaos was the norm. She always found peace outside watching things grow or climbing magnolia trees. She learned in her mother’s kitchen that the things you put in your mouth impact your mind and your body.
In the early 90’s she first found her own inspiration to view health from a holistic perspective while working as a teacher assistant at a mental health hospital for children. From that experience, she decided that there had to be a better way to help kids beyond medicating them to a zombie state with pharmaceuticals. She started college studying education and psychology ultimately received a bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Masters in Educational Leadership.
In 1999 she took her love of plants to Oakland, California where she worked with inner-city elementary students and teachers, learning and teaching about violence prevention and anger management through physical education and body awareness with Playworks. She explored working with food, exercise, breathing, and communication skills. She continued to study plants and their medicine by sharing with friends.
In 2006 she moved to Florida to find a slower pace in life. Though her love of teaching hasn’t waned, she took the opportunity to focus on deepening her plant knowledge in a more intentional way with Emily Ruff and The Florida School of Holistic Living. Since then she has found inspiration from teachers like Rosemary Gladstar and David Winston. She continues her passion for helping people find peace by sharing her knowledge with whomever will listen. She enjoys working with friends, family, and strangers seeking a more holistic way to be healthy.
These days she can be found hiking on trails, tending her garden, creating something good for you in her kitchen, teaching in her community about plant medicine, and learning from her six-year-old herbalist and his friends.
