Faith Peck, AHG, MS

Sometimes a new endeavor begins when a mom, who absolutely loved being a mom and enjoyed her children immensely, has to cope with a huge empty nest. Necessity prompts her that it is time to follow a different path. So, she went back to school – an excellent coping strategy, albeit an expensive one. When she completed her first Master’s degree in Nutrition and Herbal Medicine, Hedgewitch Enterprises (HER) was born in a little office in Abbottstown, PA, during the fall of 2017. However, she very much loved the process of learning and though she did learn a great deal with first degree, she wanted to learn much more about plant medicine. She continued for another year and completed a second Masters in Therapeutic Herbalism. She found that her heart truly lies with the plants that can heal us and with the people who need them.

So, HER expanded a little and opened a small booth, Herbs & Sympathy, at The Markets of Hanover in August 2018 with the intention of helping more people and upholding her mission statement. By February 2019, she had expanded again into a larger booth at the market and moved the private office to a home office to conserve time and resources. She loved the name of her little booth so much that she decided to change our business name to Herbs & Sympathy. In July 2022, she expanded a third time into a bigger space.  As she has retired from her “muggle” job in December 2021, she can now devote more time to Herbs & Sympathy and she is ready to spread her roots and grow.  In keeping with this, Herbs & Sympathy has now relocated to 1059 Carlisle street and is partnering with Healing Realms Holistic Wellness Center. Come and spend some time with us. We would love to share how plants – leaf, petal, root – can heal us and move us from here to healthy.

Our Mission is to strive through honest, heartfelt, educated intention and earth conscious endeavors to create and to bring to clients and customers, services and products that support body, soul and mind.
