The Essentials Online Courses


After being diagnostic with uterine fibroids at the age of 28, I decided to take charge of my health. In 2014, I received my certification as a holistic nutrition consultant and started my private practice in California. In 2017, I moved in the country and co- founder Essential Living Matters. This became my flagship to offer classes, coaching and sustainable gift boxes made from my harvesting and handmade skin care line. I wildcraft my medicinal herbs and flowers, grow a big garden and raise hay chicken. From city girl to country woman my life has changed so much over the years, and I continue to evolve around sustainability and my growing love for Mother Nature. 

Come learn and grow with me, I look forward to share my passion with you!

I had the privilege to participate in an Essential Living Matter’s Retreat July 2018. The setting was magical perfect for meditation and self reflection. We were given an abundance of healing recipes all demonstrated by Valerie. She shared endless kitchen hacks too. The food was absolutely tasty and healthy.
