The Game on Girlfriend Podcast: How One Class Changed My Life with Shannon Mulligan-Mayernik

You know how much I love plants; I’m so blown away by their power and how much they can support us, little humans, wandering around this planet.

Shannon Mulligan-Mayernik is joining us to talk about the power of plants and how they can support our bodies. For Shannon, a class taken in a small herb shop in Chester, New York, in 2012 sparked her love for medicinal plants. Today, she runs Mayernik Kitchen, a Modern Day Herbal Apothecary in Pompton Plains, New Jersey.

This was not an overnight thing. Shannon’s journey happened over the years, even though she felt this amazing sense of excitement and urgency after that first class. She had the patience and the passion to keep going.

So for those of you who aren’t sure what your passion is, or you too have taken a class, read a book, or watched a video. You’ve felt that spark that’s left you asking, “Is this my thing?” it’s time to listen to Shannon’s story.
