I can show you how to breathe life into your mystical nature.
I use scent and symbolism to help you walk your path and purpose.
I am incredibly grateful to Katie and all that she offers… she teaches birthright medicine in a way no one else does. She’s a gem, and what she brings to the heart is nothing short of spectacular and miraculous. Don’t miss the opportunity to know yourself through Katie’s eyes. –C.H.
River island apothecary is a culmination of my life’s studies.
I’ve been a teacher of healing arts since 2005. Having taught hundreds of students since then, I’m always honored to witness the moment when their sacred Self awakens, and deeply moved when they return to one of my classes to refine their study, feed their hunger for connection, and hone their unique wisdom is an honor.
My experience is also grounded in more than two decades as a massage therapist. Fluent in the subtle language of the body, I hold space for healing and growth with mastery and ease.
Currently, I work from my hometown of Asheville, NC blending oils, teaching seasonal and archetypal mysticism, and facilitating ritual. My apothecary studio, a space I designed and built, is nestled in the eastern woods of town.
My love of ritual and women’s circles began as a kid in Girl Scouts. I studied symbolism through a literature degree, and the healing arts as a massage therapist. I indulged my love of scent with Aromatherapy and the art of botanical perfumery. I kindled my love of ritual by participating in a school for women’s mysteries for many years, and circling with hundreds of women.
I’ve lived off the grid, built cool businesses, and followed my heart as an artist guided by the cycles of nature and magic.
My signature anointing oils and mystical curriculum embodies all of this.
“Working with Katie is like accepting an invitation to come home to oneself. From the moment you enter Katie’s sacred space, you are touching the Divine within while growing in your wisdom. Katie is brilliant; warm, grounded, courageous. A true master.” — Laura Juarez, Pure Potential
