Part city mouse, part country mouse, Maria is a Clinical Herbalist and founder of Bliss Without Bother, a wellness retreat planning service.
After spending many years working in the non-profit sector and feeling the strain on her whole being, Maria decided to pivot towards a lifestyle that blends work with wellness. To learn more about herself and her place in the world, Maria has participated on a variety of yoga, acroyoga, meditation, herbal medicine, and writing retreats, both domestic and abroad.
Her herbal medicine consultations incorporate elements of Western herbalism, Ayurveda, and Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as her awe-inspiring experiences traveling on retreats. Her inspiration to study herbal medicine began as a little girl playing in her mother's garden, and years later, learning first-hand about the power of plants to heal from adrenal fatigue, mold poisoning, and anxiety. Maria earned a Bachelor's degree in Classics from Bucknell University and a Master's degree in Library Science from Drexel University. She is a graduate of ArborVitae School of Traditional Herbalism and is currently researching the practices of herbal medicine in ancient Greece and Rome.
