Haley Nedderman, Staff Herbalist & Twin Star Apprentice Haley has been taking classes at Twin Star since 2014, completing trainings that include Foundations of Herbalism, Practices and Protocols of Herbalism, Flower Essence Practitioner Training in Costa Rica, and the Seed to Market Advanced Herbal Training. Before coming to Twin Star, she completed her bachelor's degree in Natural History and Environmental Humanities at Sterling College (VT), so her knowledge of plants also extends to their ecological roles and stories. Currently, Haley is working in the apothecary as an Apprentice. She spends her days blending teas, inventorying our selection of beautiful herbs, wildcrafting, coming up with new recipes, and much more. What draws Haley in the most when studying herbal medicine, is learning about the ways plants help us heal on an emotional and spiritual level. As an herbalist, she hopes to inspire people to connect with the plants that grow around them, and empower them to incorporate those plants into their everyday life.

She also graduated from Twin Star’s class Foundations of Herbalism. She’s been an intern at TwinStar since January 2018 and has learned more than she could have ever imagined in such a short period of time. One of her passions is nutrition and learning how to use food as medicine. Mairead would love to be able to spread what she learned about nutrition to the community, and be able to use it as part of her own practice once she is done with school.

She is completing her internship and final project at Twin Star and spends much of her time there harvesting and drying local herbs, making medicinal batches, hand-made small-batch body care products, and tea! Her final project will focus on educating the public of the spiritual, emotional, environmental, and even financial benefits of creating fresh, small batches of body care products for your own home. When she's not at Twin Star, Samantha can most likely be found working at the Apple Store, singing too loudly in her car, or cooking some combination of pasta and tofu.
