Avery is a Medical Herbalist, born and raised on the incredible Vancouver Island in Southwest British Columbia. She is now living in Victoria after graduating with honors from Pacific Rim College - Diploma of Phytotherapy program, where she studied western herbalism, biomedical sciences, herbal energetics, nutrition and Ayurveda.
Avery uses a combination of Western herbal medicine, Ayurvedic philosophy and holistic nutrition in her practice to assess and treat each person based on their deep innate and current constitution. Now a professional member of the CHA of BC, she hopes to make Herbal Medicine accessible to all.
In her free time she loves dancing, hooping, nature adventuring and giggling with her friends. She loves being an avid volunteer within BC music festivals doing Harm Reduction work. Traveling is a true passion of hers, having touched down and explored Southeast Asia, Europe and Central America. She participated in a volunteer project studying traditional Ayurvedic medicine in Kannur, India in 2012. While falling in love with the chaotic, yet spiritually rich country, in 2016 Avery and her partner, went back to explore India in more depth. From these experiences, she loves to bring in elements of eastern and western medicine into her practice.
