Julie Williams is a certified Herbalist, Buddhist student and the founder of Leaf People, an organic, wildcrafted skin care line based out of Colorado. Born in Alaska, Julie learned from a young age the importance and beauty of plants in our health, sparking an interest in homeopathic medicine and botanicals. Through her extensive world travel, living abroad, and devotion to the study of herbal medicine, Julie began to form Leaf People. She returned to the United States in 2001 and began mentoring under Master Herbalist Lillian McCracken and attending herbal medical school with Master Herbalist Lynn Albers. Julie continues to travel and further her education with Herbalists in the Amazon and Andes, and is a member of the American Herbalist Guild. She also practices at Tara Mandala Buddhist Center in Colorado and feels that her studies of botanical medicine and Buddhism are an integral part of the developing and manufacturing of each product in Leaf People.
