Ceara Foley, Director

A lifelong student of nature, Ceara Foley moved to the area to study amongst its rich botanical abundance at the school she now owns and directs. Growing up with chronic pain and disease, Ceara became disenchanted the medical options she was presented with and turned to the plant kingdom for another way. She has lived off the grid for almost twenty years and enjoys homeschooling her daughter and giving back to the plants which have given her so much at her home at Soulflower Botanical Sanctuary.

Cassidy Schlager, Office Goddess

Cassidy Schlager is madly in love with plants of all kinds, although she is especially partial to the wild, unruly weeds that push up through cracks in the concrete. She began studying herbal medicine eleven years ago at the Northeast School of Botanical Medicine and hasn’t stopped! Her passion for crafting plant medicines takes her from wildharvesting adventures in fields and forests to uninhibited herbal brewing experiments.
