Lorna Mauney-Brodek is a clinical herbalist and teacher with a focus on healthcare access.  She offers a sliding scale herbal clinic in East Atlanta; leads the Harriet Tubman Free Foot Clinic, providing holistic foot care to our friends on the street; and is the founder and director of the Herbalista Health Network (aka the Herb Bus) which offers care and education to underserved communities.   Lorna teaches at various schools around the country and abroad, spreading the Herb Bus method and celebrating our capacity to build community through herbalism.

Lorna Mauney-Brodek is a traveling herbalist, medicine maker, wildcrafter and teacher. Much of her herbwork supports organizations dedicated to promoting diversity, environmental responsibility, and social justice.  Growing up “americana,” her health practices reflect the abundantly diverse influence of these lands to blend western medical herbalism, traditional chinese five phase, Ayurveda, southern folks, and kitchen-craft.  Early barefoot adventures in the Appalachian foothills and global wanderings with tent-packing parents led to more formal trainings in plant medicine.  She completed an herbal residency with Michael Moore at the Southwest School of Botanical Medicine and her clinical internship at the Blue Ridge School for Herbal Studies.  Lorna is the founder and director of the Herbalista Health Network.  Lorna teaches at various venues around the southeast, including BotanoLogos, the Blue Ridge School, and Homestead Atlanta.
