Lush Lady Wellness: Amber Spears C.H.H.C. 

I am an unapologetic instigator of awesome here to help you every way I can. I have worn many colorful hats over the years dipping my toes in everything from owning a clothing store to being a sex educator. Along the way, I have always maintained an avid interest in alternative healthcare, psychology, scrumptious food and empowering women. I sought holistic health coach training (at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition) as a natural extension of those interests and my incessant  desire to see my peers bloom. These varied experiences have resulted in a grounded, non judgmental worldview that creates a safe space to explore your goals and challenges in an enthusiastic environment. Today, I do this work as a wellness educator and yoga instructor ( serving women from PDX to Mt Hood in-person and worldwide online. I own and run a small, organic, farm to table food cart called Sissymama’s in Welches, Or.  I also serve as organizer to the Hoodland Farmacy (a welches based food buying club)  helping connect local families to local farms and provide educational support for our community regarding proper nutrition for optimal health.
