Deborah Brandt is a Clinical Herbalist and professional member of the American Herbalist Guild. She began her career as a certified herbalist in 1994 when she opened her own apothecary known as From the Ground Up. She primarily treats and heals her clients through the use of herbs. Her evaluations often incorporate other variables ranging from lifestyle and diet to traditional methods of medical analysis. Deborah also has experience as a registered nurse, so she often receives client referrals from medical doctors within our community. Deborah "began working as a nurse herbalist because of the need for a safe and time honored healing tradition...that connects us to the healing available from the plants that we rely on".

Deborah Brandt has been a Co-op Member-Owner since 1990, and she identifies with the co-operative values and the belief in community-focused businesses. As a local business owner, she believes that it is important to work with the local community in “cooperation with each other, not competition”. She believes that if local business owners work together and share their own special talents then all will benefit.
