Dana Perry spent most of her childhood building homes for resident fairies (and other small woodland creatures) in rural north Idaho. More formal education in Sociology permeates her current work with plants, highlighting the importance of micro and macro social institutions and their impact on personal experience. She believes that herbs allow humans to be unique and whole beings, not a series of broken parts to be remedied bit by bit - and without regard to mind, spirit, personal and sociocultural identity. She holds an M.A. in Sociology from The New School and recently graduated from Arbor Vitae's clinical herbalism program in NYC. www.danamperry.com
