Welcome to Leaf & Petal Alchemy
Dawn Schimke is an herbalist, wellness coach, and advocate for her clients. She began her formal herbal education in 2007, and applied her skills as a pastry chef to concocting wellness formulas in the apothecary. Her clinical skills, a love for research, and fierce compassion are interwoven with storytelling, nature metaphors, and a keen eye for energetic patterns. Her offerings include ongoing support programs for people who experience chronic conditions that affect their energy levels (aka Spoonies), including Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, dysautonomia, and fibromyalgia. Dawn also offers mini-workshops to 'herb-curious' individuals and groups who desire simple and delicious techniques to upgrade their wellness autonomy.
Diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome in 2013, Dawn uses her own experience to help Zebras, neurodivergent people and others navigate their own experience in the world.
