About the Speaker: Kelly Abon

Kelly Abon, a paramedic for 24 years, started her medical journey on the coattails of a family doctor who took her under his wing as a freshman in high school. Kelly received her license from Northeast State Technical Community College in 1996. Kelly's career began in northeast Tennessee where she enjoyed working as a volunteer and in the professional arena in 1997. Kelly had the privilege to work with the Ministry of Health in the Marshall Islands for seven years, providing medical aid to the village of Laura on the capital island of Majuro. Her work in clouded the facilitation of short-term medical missions teams, overseeing day-to-day emergency care, emergency delivery of over 1,000 babies, and working with both the tuberculosis and Hanson's Disease care teams. After her return home to the States in 2002, she received the outstanding alumni award from the American Association of Community Colleges for her work done in the Marshall Islands.

About the Instructor: Alicia Wornicov

Alicia's plant journey began about twenty years ago when she was fifteen years old. She was serving in missions in Chile and the Father began to orchestrate a calling over her life to serve people through plants and natural medicine. She began to mentor under some great herbalists in her home state of California and the Father blessed each step, always providing someone to pour in generations of knowledge into her life. She lived with the Mapuche people of the southern Andes in Chile where she learned to see plants as a vital part of everyday life, and the great opportunity that this was to be able to serve others by teaching them these ways. When she moved to Tennessee in 2006, she began to spend several hours a day outdoors. Most of life was spent in the woods, fields and streams intently learning each plant, mushroom, ecosystem and foraging method she could, committing them to memory and learning their uses as food and medicine. She studied through an herb school for four years as well but definitely believes that creation and Creator are the best teachers, by far. She is carrying on her native legacy as a Powhatan and Wompanoag woman and honoring that heritage by teaching the people of these ancient and crucial skills. Over the course of twenty years, she has been a student, teacher, instructor, mentor, writer, speaker and entrepreneur. But mostly she likes to focus as using what God has called her to do to serve those around her.
