When she’s not in the boardroom or working with people at her retreat, Irie speaks both her mind and her heart at educational panels and healthcare conferences across the globe, and holds workshops and seminars for consumers, patients and industry leaders.
A lifetime of plant and natural medicine experiences combined with her academic studies and a background in wellness and retail has led to over 10 years as an insightful educator, facilitator, advocate and business leader. Irie believes that thoughtful plant medicine consumption and mindfulness can infuse a sense of purpose and wonder into our modern lives—especially in the new post-Covid economy, by improving our lives and connecting us with those around us and ourselves in meaningful ways.
