Amara grew up in the Sierra Nevada foothills hiking, horse back riding, gardening, and tending young children and animals. Since a very young age she aspired to become a doctor. While finishing just a year studying at Brandeis University, stress and the Boston climate exacerbated a long term struggle with Lyme’s Disease necessitating a medical leave. After a decade of tests and unsuccessful treatments, frustration with the allopathic medical system lead Amara to try herbal medicine. Amara has traveled the world exploring Asia,India, Africa and Europe and the destruction of so many precious cultures and ecosystems has deeply inspired her. She went in search of her souls’ work and has discovered that becoming an herbalist would not only affect the people she works with, but also nurture the earth. While at Ohlone, Amara has simultaneously been completing a year long energy medicine training from the Hopi tradition.She plans to continue her studies at the University of Hawaii’s Ethnobotony program next year before pursuing a dual graduate degree as a Nurse Practitioner and Nurse Midwife. The desire to be a healer with individuals from before birth through death has been strengthened by learning holistic medicine and how a healthy spirit and lifestyle are the foundation of a meaningful life well lived. Amara is a young person with an old soul. She listens carefully and seeks to uncover the mysteries each person is meant to explore.
