We had the good fortune of connecting with Nicole Fullard and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nicole, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I think about risk the same way I think about life. You’ll lose if you don’t try. My husband and I took a risk moving to Colorado from the east coast. We had never been here before and packed up our son and belongings to make a change. It was risky but it paid off. Taking risks has helped me to network and meet new people, expand my communication skills, and helped me to be more “out of the box” in life.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m an herbalist and part of what sets me apart from others is I seek to help the client find complete mind, body, and soul healing through the energetics of the plants and their own transformation. I help my clients develop a relationship with the medicine they consume by learning how certain plants may interact with their body constitution. I’m most excited that people are returning to natural methods of healing in addition to western medicine. Both can work together and I love that more people are embracing what the earth has provided us as medicine. My journey to get here was not without trial and error. In the beginning when I was learning, I was so zealous that I started making things without really understanding what I was doing. Luckily to no one’s detriment. LOL Now through study and application, I have been able to really learn and understand this medicine and why it’s so important and even sacred. What I’ve learned as I study and practice herbalism is that people really want to get to know the earth and themselves. They are seeking to find ways to connect and I’m glad to be able to shine a light on this way of healing. My brand is finding the healing within. I am not the healer, I help you realize the healing within you.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I love eclectic and artsy places along with being outdoors. I would take my friend to Cherry Creek State Park to walk the trails. I would take her to eat at True Food Kitchen in Cherry Creek. Of course we have to catch a show at Red Rocks and visit the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. I would take her to the Museum for Black Girls and grab some Ramen. Can’t forget the Denver Performing Arts district and the 16th Street Mall. We would immerse ourselves into the city and culture of Denver.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My husband has been my biggest cheerleader. He is the product tester, the tea tester, incense blend smeller, the infused oil shaker, he’s the renaissance man to my boss babe energy. He has supported me from the moment I told him I wanted to make medicine with herbs. He never questioned my sanity or my dedication. He’s my “ride or die”. When he rolls, I roll and vice-versa. He supports my big and little dreams and I’m so grateful for his love and energy.
