About Lindsey Snopek and Mother Bear Herbs

Hello!  Thank you so much for your interest in Mother Bear Herbs.  I have always been drawn to nature and head outdoors when I need to be calm, grounded, and healed.  I have worn many hats in my life, but they all share a common theme which is that of a healer.  


I competed my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology at the University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh.  I wasn't sure what path I wanted to follow and held positions as a veterinary technician and pharmacy technician.  I met my husband while working together at a hospital pharmacy.   We decided to go on an adventure and move from Wisconsin to Texas. After a few years there we were blessed with our son.  This is where my herbalism journey began.

While pregnant, I started to lead a more natural lifestyle.  I planned a natural, unmedicated birth and signed up for a birth class with a local birth center.  At one of our classes a local herbalist came to speak with us about herbs for pregnancy and we were able to taste test some wonderful teas.  She told us a little bit about herself and her life and I was smitten.  I'll admit, I may have had an herbalist crush.  I wanted to be her when I grew up!  A few months later I gave birth and realized there wasn't going to be much time to take on a new career.  I loved being a stay-at-home mom, but I wanted to still do something to help others and to get me out of the house baby free once in a while.  I learned about placenta encapsulation and knew I needed to learn the process so I could help other moms.  I completed my placenta encapsulation certification in 2011.  It is such a blessing to be able to help moms heal during those first few weeks after birth. 

After my son turned one, I knew that heading back to Wisconsin sooner than later would be necessary.  All of our family was still in Wisconsin and I was one tired mama that needed help!  We made the trek back to Wisconsin at the end of 2012.  The idea of becoming a clinical herbalist was still weighing heavily on my mind and I decided to seek out a program that would allow me to accomplish this.  I found an amazing program in Madison, Wisconsin.  During my apprenticeship, I had a daughter and decided this time I was going to make it work so I could continue my dream.  I completed my clinical herbalist apprenticeship in 2017 and am so excited to be able to help others improve their health naturally.
