Monica moved to Hobart from inner city Melbourne at the beginning of 2017 to join the Goulds Natural Medicine Team and enjoy a slower, greener pace of life. Since then, she has been working in both the Apothecary and Clinic. She founded the Hobart chapter of Herbalists Without Borders and is involved with Radical Herbalists Australia and Indigenous Plants for Health Association.

Monica has a strong values-based practice with a focus on accessibility, social justice, equality, and environmental sustainability. This was a big part of her choice to move to Goulds, with our ‘Farm to Apothecary’ model.

​Monica is a strong advocate for helping womxn reconnect to their bodies and their cycles. Her main area of practice is menstrual and hormonal health but she has other special areas of interest (listed below). With a mix of evidence-based treatments and traditional herbal knowledge, she enjoys working with folk to make sustainable change for improved wellbeing and a balanced, healthy life.

Monica is LGBTIQA+ friendly, trauma-informed, sex positive and is passionate about adjusting care to suit any person’s budget, circumstance, or preferences.
