November 3, 2022

I started posting on LinkedIn a few times a week.

Most of you know that I had been off social media for several years. I wasn’t into the endless scrolling, the comparison trap, or the ethical & privacy dilemmas associated with social media.

I still have some of the same concerns, and I also felt an inner urge to start sharing my writing more broadly and to participate in wider conversations.

So, I’m back - in a limited way.

LinkedIn may seem like an odd choice. It doesn’t have some of the slightly touchy-feely/pretty features of IG etc. It’s more of a professional feel.

That’s exactly what drew me there.

I’m interested in having conversations and sharing thoughts about the professions of herbalism and nutrition. LinkedIn is slow enough that I can comfortably show up a few times a week. I feel caught up after 15 minutes and go about the rest of my day.

I also appreciate that it handles long(ish) articles and posts well.

Am I still hesitant about participating in social media? Yep, no doubt.

However, I’m going in with an open mind. I’m giving it 3-6 months. If I love it, great. If not, I’ll reassess.

If you’re there, I’d love to connect.



P.S. Here are a few of my LinkedIn posts in case you’d like to check them out or say hello:

Hi there. Thank you for checking out my Practitioner Note. To give you a bit of context, I've been in practice as a licensed nutritionist and clinical herbalist since 2004. My practice focus areas include fertility, menstrual health, and circadian rhythms. I'm also a professor in the Department of Nutrition at the Maryland University of Integrative Health and have two master's degrees in physiology and herbal medicine, as well as a doctorate in clinical nutrition. 

Through my work at Bloom & Grow, I run a community of practice for herbalists & nutritionists called Monday Mentoring and also offer continuing education programs (check out my annual Deep Dive) and courses to help folks find sustainable and fulfilling ways to make clinical practice work.  You can learn more about me on my bio page.
