Hi, I’m Annie Fox (She/They)
I consider myself a folk healer, clinical herbalist, medicine womxn, and witch. I’m gender-creative and ever seeking to dissolve binaries. I have Lebanese, Germanic, Scottish, and Irish ancestry. I currently live in Pittsburgh, PA, the unceded territory and meeting point of many indigenous nations, including the Seneca, Haudenosaunee, Lenni Lenape, and Osage people.
In my day to day life, I’m dedicated to deepening my relationship to plant medicines and the spirits of this beautiful land. I do my best to integrate this through daily practices, prayer, meditation, ceremony, song, wonder & laughter. My vantage point with plants is one of relationship, and I truly believe that our plant kin thrive when we show them intentional attention and affection as living beings.
In my work, I bring cultivated skills of compassionate attention, deep and reflective listening, and intuitive guidance. I deeply love people and believe in our inherent capacity to heal. I am completely fascinated by the healing process and am constantly learning how to care for the tenderness of health and wellbeing.
Like any good witch, I have a familiar – a fluffy gray and white cat named Nimbus. I align with the fox-like qualities of loyalty, cleverness, and playfulness. I love to sing around the fire, frolic in the woods, dance, cuddle with my friends, and play games of all forms.
I recently had a daughter named Juniper and have embarked on the journey of mxtherhood alongside my partner Dré.
Lineage of Learning
Because my studies have been independently driven and rather eclectic, it’s hard to pinpoint each teacher or healer that has influenced me.
I have a bachelors’s degree in Environmental and Plant Biology from Ohio University. While this provided a solid foundation in learning about the natural world, it was after I graduated in 2010 that I began my study of Herbal Medicine.
After a few years of self study, my first major influence and teacher in herbal medicine was Ola Obasi, at the Well of Indigenous Wisdom School, who I studied with from 2013 – 2017. Over the last 10 years, I’ve traveled and apprenticed with various folk herbalists and indigenous medicine keepers from north and South America and have gone to countless herbal conferences and weekend intensives with herbalists such as Matthew Wood, Margi Flint, 7Song, Jim Mcdonald, Rosemary Gladstar and Esstin Mcleod. Currently I participate in the Allegheny Herbal Clinical Round Table with Leslie Williams & Leslie Alexander.
I’m always reading new books, listening to podcasts and videos from other herbalists, and generally seeking to increase my knowledge and experience as I continue down this wisdom path.
