My Story

Since 1992, Natural Choices Botanica has stood at the forefront teaching students the art of herbalism & holistic health. What began as a herb catalog business quickly blossomed into a successful retail store. By 1999, the store was devastated by a tornado and she was forced to reshape the vision.
