Connect to your roots.

Connect to nature.

Rise to your highest potential.

Meet Melanie 

Root 2 Rise Wellness grew from my desire to help people live meaningful lives in connection with the natural world. I am a certified speech and language pathologist by trade, and worked with children in public schools, clinics, and in their home for 12 years. While I love my profession, I found within myself a deep longing to learn more about medicinal plants and explore a deeper connection with the earth. So, I enrolled in a 5-month program in Israel where I began my herbalism journey.  Following this life-changing experience, I knew I had found a new direction for my life. I went on to complete several more programs and apprenticeships in herbalism and health coaching to hone my passion, knowledge and skills.

"Melanie is an amazing teacher and I am deeply grateful for the fun adventure that her classes have taken me on.  Her passion for plants and her creative, humorous approach to teaching helped me feel comfortable to experiment and make mistakes.  Due to Melanie's inspiring guidance, I've started making my own tinctures and flower essences and I've learned how happy I feel when I go outside to harvest."
