Berenice Martinez

Berenice Martinez is a spiritual, queer, Hispanic woman on a journey to become an herbalist. Born and raised in Pomona, Ca, Berenice has been an active member of her community since 2013. She advocates for the LGBTQIA+ community as well as for the arts and the environment. Being the second child of three daughters, Berenice took the untraditional educational road and is currently learning herbalism through hands-on experience. As a true Taurus, Berenice found her passion in nature. Her ultimate goal is to educate her community on how to advocate for green spaces while being sustainably conscious. In her free time you will catch her reading, writing, baking, singing or playing with her cat and dog.
