Carissa Rose Hayes

A tenderized New Yorkin Californian, Carissa is an untamed dancing flame of curiosity. She loves finding her true reflection amongst the golden California poppies and listening to the whispers of fairies in the understory of wise oaks. Find her in her original birthday suit tending the land, growing medicinal herbs and scrumptious vegetables, whistle painting beauty into the landscape with wildflowers in her footsteps. In the realm of diploma-acy, Carissa is a Clinical Herbalist with a deep focus on female reproductive wellness, and currently she is working towards her larger vision of becoming a revolutionary midwife.

She did the Apprenticeship Program and Clinical Herbalist Program at Berkeley Herbal Center, and now is an instructor there. She is a certified doula through Natural Resources.
