Domenique Price

Apothecary & Shop Manager in Training/ Clinical Herbalist in Training

Domenique has known from a young age that she would have a career working with and in nature. She is a graduate of Auburn University with a degree in Wildlife Ecology and Management. She gained an interest in plants while working at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge while assisting in surveys of Monarch butterflies and Frosted flatwood salamanders (both endangered species). Domenique recognized how important plant diversity is to the native fauna. She also began shadowing a Park Ranger at the refuge who was extremely knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of Florida, specifically identifying medicinal plants and their uses. She discovered everything we need to maintain our health can be found in plants. This was the beginning of it all!

Today, she desires to further her knowledge and experience in herbal medicine and desires to also bridge the gap for low income communities.
