I am an angel, a dragon, a human, a tree.

A child of  the Appalachian Mountains, Amanda was a student of

English Literature, a pastor’s wife learning in silence, and a Shenandoah

midwife’s assistant. After receiving her degree from Campbell University,

Amanda studied at the Green Comfort School of Herbal Medicine and is

a particular student of renowned author and herbalist, Matthew Wood.


Amanda is the author of Flowers for a Girl: Plant Medicine and Sexual Trauma

and the founder of Liriodendress Press. She is the creator and curator of Entosophy, a dynamic collection of unique, philosophical interviews with trees and

the human voice of the Whispers: Plant Spirit Medicine podcast. She is a teacher and contributing voice at the Matthew Wood Institute of Herbalism,

and her creative work with plant spirit communication was displayed at

the 2024 Yale Graduate Conference in Religion & Ecology.

Amanda is immersed in the quiet exploration of Other Ways of Knowing.

Her Green Tongue is the fruit of a devotion to intuitive practices and

intentional listening.

Amanda’s embodied expression is deeply embedded in the heart of the

Tulip Poplar tree who has been her arboreal companion for many years. 

In union with the tree, Amanda is a Liriodendress, a human embodiment

of Liriodendron tulipifera.

An eco-mystic and mother of six children, Amanda listens to the trees

while writing by a light-filled window in her South Carolina home.

You are invited to contact Amanda for inquiries regarding collaborating, speaking, writing, and experiencing the mundane magic of plant communication and
the world of the Tulip Poplar tree.
