Loving the outdoors and all things green, from a very young age Fieke was drawn to nature and its gifts; going for forest walks and observing wild mushrooms in her native Belgium was without a doubt her favourite activity.
A personal health issue while travelling through New Zealand, sparked her interest to learn about the natural healing allies the country had to offer. That experience would lead to the beginning of her journey to become a Clinical Herbalist. Fieke is currently enrolled in the Practical Herbalist program at Wild Rose College of Natural Healing in BC, Canada.
She offers weekly herbal walking tours where she teaches about the local medicinal and edible plants in Zermatt. In the summer she also offers a series of foraging workshops centered around the theme of implementing herbs and plants into daily life while being aware about seasonality and sustainability
