Meet the Herbalists!

Faith Rodgers (owner / certified clinical herbalist)


Hey there, Welcome to the Little Herbal Apothecary! My name is Faith. I am certified clinical herbalist and mom of three. I created the Little Herbal Apothecary in 2015 to support the community by providing access to high quality organic herbal remedies and all-natural, botanical skincare products. One of my biggest passions is teaching people how to make their own herbal remedies at home. You can find a ton of great recipes on the Little Herbal Blog or visit the store for a hands-on workshop! When I am not at the Apothecary, you can find me playing board games with my kids, wandering in the mountains or playing my ukulele. 

Amber Wood (general manager, certified clinical herbalist & nutritionist)

Hello. I am a certified clinical herbalist and general manager of the Apothecary.  I studied herbs at the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism here in Lafayette. I am passionate about helping others take control of their own health with the support of herbs, food and exercise. I love learning about local plants and discovering new ways of using them as both food and medicine. In my spare time I enjoy wandering, reading, listening to music, traveling, preparing food, sharing meals and laughing with friends.

Liz Faermark (certified clinical herbalist & nutritionist)

Hi, I'm Liz. I am a certified clinical herbalist and clinical nutritionist. Since completing my education at the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism in early 2020, I have focused my professional pursuits on teaching. I am passionate about sharing valuable information that fosters resilience in individuals and communities alike. Consider joining me  for one of my upcoming classes or workshops!  Accessibility is central to my personal herbal philosophy. I'm a big fan of doing what you can and using what you have. I value thrift, ingenuity, and creativity in the practice of herbalism (and in life). When I am not at the Apothecary, you might find me drinking copious cups of coffee, reading non-fiction books on music history and music criticism, listening to music and podcasts (No Dogs in Space is my current favorite), cooking, journaling in the cemetery, or sunning on a rock off the trail. 

Alli Barber (certified herbalist)

Hi, my name is Alli and I am a certified herbalist. I graduated from the Advanced program from the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism in 2019. Born and raised in Colorado, I have been drawn to herbs since my teens and found them even more important when I became a mother.  I love to use herbs in my everyday life, especially when I can use them in my cooking! In my free time you can find me reading, cooking, gardening or hiking with my husband and my five children.

Alanna Fernandez (production manager)

Hello! My name is Alanna. Like my co-workers, I am drawn to plants just the same. Landscaping in Colorado for 9 years has shown me the natural growing states and environments where our ever present variety of local herbs thrive. Diving deeper into the plant world and community brought me to volunteering for a year at Moondance Botanicals in Denver, Colorado where I began to learn about the medicinal properties of plants. Totally immersed in the growing and working with plants, I started incorporating herbs into the making of my own products. As the production manager at Little Herbal I love getting dirty in the creation of our many loved products that people return for again and again. I have learned so much from working at the Little Herbal Apothecary and constantly continue to learn so much more from my amazing, knowledgeable coworkers. When I’m not producing in our kitchen, I usually am seeking out water, sailing, cooking (more importantly eating) delicious things with friends, creatively expressing myself, or walking my sweet pup.  

Jen Ball (certified herbalist)

Hi there! My name is Jen, and I'm a certified herbalist and flower essence practitioner. I attended the Colorado School Of Clinical Herbalism, where I graduated from the advanced program in 2022. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and at an early age, I learned the importance of the human-plant connection. Little did I know that this would lay the foundation for my plant studies. My true passion lies with the vibrational medicine of plants, which has led to the studies of Amazonian plant medicine, Cha Dao ("The Way Of Tea"), an ancient practice of tea service, and flower essences. In my leisure time you will find me in nature, spending time with my rescue pup, Dolly, or sitting in tea ceremony. 

Rachel Bull (certified herbalist)

Hello, my name is Rachel! I am a certified herbalist and will be finishing up my education in 2024 at the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism as a clinical herbalist and flower essence practitioner. When I was first introduced to the art of herbalism, I quickly found solace on my journey of healing. I love incorporating herbs into my skincare routine, garden, cleaning supplies, baking, and cooking (most often in a loaf of sourdough). While every body is unique, I believe there is something out there for everyone when it comes to herbs. On my days off, I enjoy being by bodies of water, going for solo walks, reading a wide variety of novels, baking to my heart's content, and having meaningful conversations with my friends and husband!
