Angela Ruggiero-Corliss is an herbalist and poet based in Brooklyn. She started volunteering at Third Root in March 2017 and is thrilled to step up as the newest member of the administrative team!
Angela studied five-element shiatsu and Iyengar-style yoga with eminent teacher Eileen Muir of Karuna Center for Yoga & Healing Arts (Northampton, MA), and apprenticed in the wise-woman tradition of herbalism at Flower Power Herbs & Roots (East Village, NYC.) She holds a BA in English from Columbia University.
As the descendant of Italian and Irish immigrants to New York City, Angela understands it as part of her ancestral legacy to work towards health justice for ALL of her fellow New Yorkers. Third Root is a source of continual nourishment and inspiration for her. She dreams of some day practicing as an acupuncturist herself.
A solar Leo with a Capricorn stellium in the third house, Angela is interested in bodies, words, flavors, feelings, plants, magic, and radical love. She enjoys cooking, reading, biking, going to the woods and the beach, listening to music, practicando su Español, and marveling at the softness of her beautiful cat, Grace.
