Deborah is a clinical herbalist and nutritionist with a Master of Science degree in Herbal Medicine from the Maryland University of Integrative Health, where she is now on faculty. Her love affair with plants goes back to her childhood, when she would emerge from the woods, arms full of flowers, beaming. Deborah has always had a strong intuition about food as our primary medicine, understanding the importance of nourishing ourselves with wholesome, unprocessed foods grown in nutrient rich soil from heritage seeds. She is passionate about conservation, particularly the native plants that are the primary link in our local food chain.
For Heather, Apotheosis brings her back to her Midwestern roots in a small farming village. As the Farm’s primary groundskeeper, Heather spends a lot of her time in meditation on the tractor and in the woods. This is a peaceful respite from her busy life as a Maryland legislator and CEO of The Mizeur Group, a consulting firm.
