Kellay is a licensed Cosmetologist in the state of California. She trained in hair styling, skin care, and make-up at the San Francisco Institute of Esthetics and Cosmetology.
She has taken courses and trained with Rosemary Gladstar, Atava Garcia Swiecicki, and Liz Migliorelli. She has also taken classes on permaculture, beekeeping, and meditation. She has a passion for beauty, health, and self-care.
She discovered herbalism when she was in the midst of her own healing struggle. In her path to self-love and healing, she discovered her garden and the treasure hunt that is urban foraging.
She became interested in helping others with herbal medicine when traditional western medicine was not helping herself or her mother who suffers from an autoimmune diseases.
The majority of her creations are made from locally sourced ingredients. From her own garden, neighbors, and local businesses in Berkeley, CA whenever possible.
