Beyond Clinical Work
Instructor of Mycology, Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism
After completing her studies at the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism, Danielle Ryan, RH (AHG) was invited to create a fungi-centered curriculum to teach CSCH's first ever classes on fungi, medicinal mushrooms, and the fascinating world of mycology. She loves educating curious minds about all that fungi have to offer and has a unique way of making complex processes, ideas, and scientific research accessible and approachable to a wide range of individuals. After studying with Peter McCoy in New Mexico in the fall of 2016, Danielle’s love for mycology blossomed. Along with instructing students at CSCH, she cultivates medicinal mushrooms on a home scale, teaches classes to the public on DIY cultivation, and does one-on-one mentoring with aspiring mycologists in the community.
Wilderness Herbal First Responder Instructor, Global Emergency Medics
Immersion in the outdoors is one of the oldest forms of healing, known as Nature Cure. Given Danielle’s love for spending time outside and adventuring into backcountry environments, she merged with Global Emergency Medics to create a Wilderness Herbal First Responder. This course teaches medical training both in the classroom and in the field, combining traditional rescue skills and management with botanical identification of medicinal herbs, creating personal herbal first aid kits, medicine making in the field, and how to use local plants as healing allies no matter how remote you may be.
