A word from dr. Glen Nagel

As someone with a lifelong passion for plants and nature, it's my mission to share what I've learned with my students, clients and the world. I've worked in the herbal industry as an educator for many years, offering fun and educational classes and courses in herbal medicine to students of all kinds.

My passion for plants started in the early 1980s when I served as one of the first herbal apprentices to Herbal Ed Smith and Sara Katz, both Herb Pharm founders. I graduated from the National College of Natural Medicine in 1993 and have continued learning from experts, including Dr. Ryan Drum and the late Cascade Anderson Geller.

I'm a licensed naturopathic physician in Oregon where I live with my wife, two daughters and a garden of wild weeds. And though my career began in the medical industry, teaching with humor and hands-on experience is my specialty. My experience as an educator includes roles as a former assistant professor of botanical medicine at Bastyr University in Kenmore, Washington and an adjunct profession in botanical medicine at National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. 

I'm excited to be involved with the development of the next generation of herbal and botanical products.

– Glen  S.  Nagel
