Angela Specker was born and raised in Missouri. Her family moved to the country when she was only 2 years old. Her favorite activities were wandering around the old abandoned rock quarry next to their property, swimming, fishing, mushroom hunting, church activities, and anything outside. She married her highschool sweetheart at the age of 16 and had twins 3 months later. One of the twins, Thomas, only lived for two and a half months and was a special blessing to many. She proceeded to have 3 more children over the next five years which she homeschooled, was active at her church in the Women’s department, was youth leader, and Vacation Church School director. Somewhere along the way she discovered her love for herbs and natural healing. She earned a degree in Natural Health from Clayton College of Natural Health and Healing, and earned a Master Herbalist Certificate from The School of Natural Healing. Today she enjoys family get-togethers, cooking, gardening, camping, reading, making herbal medicine, lecturing and teaching herbal and natural healing.
