Dean G. Morris, Master Herbalist
As a fifth-generation herbalist, Dean grew up on herbs and has diverse experience in organic horticulture, the natural foods industry and healthcare. Taught by his father to grow lady slipper orchids and other herbs, Dean went on to farm 165 acres of organic herbs in the 80’s. While attending Brigham Young University in pre-professional nutrition, he worked for a nationally distributed dietary supplement manufacturer. After college, he served as dean of admissions, author, editor and teacher for John R. Christopher’s School of Natural Healing.
In 1997, Dean was invited to help form a multi-disciplinary alternative medicine team and was granted full practicing privileges as an herbalist at the Columbia hospital Miami Heart Institute in Miami Beach, Florida. From there, he was recruited by Nature's Way to be their senior educator, formulator, director of new products, and director of technical services.
In 2009, Dean resumed fulltime directorship of Nebo Health, a consultancy for the dietary supplement industry. As an independent consultant, he enjoys sharing the benefits of the many products he helped launch in the eleven years he worked for Nature's Way. Dean most enjoys the herbwalk presentations he feels fortunate to provide throughout the world.
He and his wife Lorinne are raising a sixth generation of herbalists in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains in Utah.
