J is an activist, writer, educator and performer currently working on a collection of essays centered around addiction and recovery. J's current passion is plants and making herbal medicine. She studied herbal medicine with Wild Gather in Hudson, NY, and in Orlando with The Florida School of Holistic Living, earned a certificate in <a href="http://thehealthsciencesacademy.org/" target="_hplink">Nutritional Therapy</a> and is pursuing a certificate in <a href="http://www.afaa.com/" target="_hplink">Primary Group Exercise</a>. She has found that nutrition and exercise help her exorcise the daily demons and wants to help others do the same. J loves to travel solo and makes zines about her experiences.
Oh, and to pay her bills, J toils from 7:30 to 3:00 (hopefully) challenging the youth of America to make this world a better place.
