Jen Stovall

Social Justice and Harm Reduction in Herbal Practice

 Jen Stovall, a Georgia native, spent her childhood summers exploring the abundance of wild plants in the Southern Appalachian Mountains and the piedmont region. Inspired by the beauty and mystery of wild plant medicines, she began her journey to learn more about herbalism. This led her to study with many of the top herbal teachers in the US: 7song, the late Michael Moore, Phyllis D. Light, Patricia Kyritsi Howell and DeAnna Batdorff.

In addition to her herbal training, Jen holds a BSN-RN from the Louisiana State University School of Nursing, and a NADA Ear Acupuncture Detox Specialist and Trainer license, both of which continue to inform her herbal practice.

In 2011, Jen opened Maypop Community Herb Shop, a collectively run apothecary and clinic in New Orleans that has become a primary source of health care for the local community.

Jen is a full-time a Community Herbalist and Health Educator, using a blend of Southern Folk Medicine and Western Herbalism in her practice. Learn more here.
