About de l’animatrice

Having graduated in visual arts (college), in sociology and herbalism, Alexandra Zawadzki-Turcotte was first an activist and a political organizer. Then, through her academic journey, she focused on the intersection between historical epistemology of medicine and feminism, before she  finally got acquainted with herbalism. She is now interested in practicing and sharing her knowledge, thanks to her training, knowledge of medicinal plants, as well as transformation techniques. According to Alexandra, this practice is intertwined with her initial journey, in the sense that it is based on a feminist approach for the reappropriation of knowledge and expertise on bodies and healthcare. She started both her business, Clotilde du Balai – Herbalist products, and workshops in 2017.
