Catie Winters, MS, CCH
Functional Nutritionist, Clinical Herbalist
As a certified clinical herbalist and functional nutritionist with a decade of practice, education, and training, Catie offers healing support and guidance for the whole person with a root cause approach. She studied herbal medicine and clinical nutrition at the North American Institute of Medical Herbalism and graduated in 2010, after 2 years of study, with certifications in both Clinical Herbalism and Clinical Nutrition. In 2018, she completed the Integrative and Functional Medicine Professional Training Program with Aviva Romm, M.D. She is currently completing her Masters of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine at the University of Western States and is working to earn her Certified Nutrition Specialist license.
Catie came to find herbal medicine and functional nutrition as her true life calling only after her undergraduate work in cultural anthropology and environmental studies and her graduate program, specializing in food and garden-based education. Her love for global adventures brought her to live and learn in many unique communities in the world. Whether through her work in ecological education, ethnographic studies and travels or simply through her own deep connection with the natural world, she has always sought to understand the unique connection people have with plants, particularly culinary and medicinal plants.
She was integrally involved in the birthing of a vibrant herbal apothecary in Nevada City, California where she worked as an herbalist for 6 years. In addition to her clinical practice, she owns and runs a small herbal honey product-based business, Harvesting Vitality. She loves to spend time gardening, traveling, hiking, cross country skiing, cooking and medicine making, and having fun with her family and friends.
