About Kelley Robie


     Kelley Robie is a practicing Herbalist, certified Iridologist, and Animal Communicator with a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from the University of Vermont. She received a diploma in Holistic Iridology from the International Institute of Iridology. She teaches an Eight Month Herbal Apprenticeship program during the spring, summer and fall months, and teaches herbal workshops throughout the community. She is a second-degree Reiki student, and is trained in Bio-Energy Analysis Technique.
    Kelley’s passion for animals began when she was very young; as a girl she longed for her own horse. When her parents bought her a horse for her thirteenth birthday, she was overjoyed. She has been studying with her equine teachers ever since, and treasures the spiritual connection she has with her animal friends.

    Kelley’s desire to explore alternative health started later in life. Symptoms of asthma & allergies were held at bay by prescription medicines, and the diagnosis of fibromyalgia couldn’t be resolved using western medicine.  Kelley began to realize these illnesses indicated deeper imbalances. After meeting a woman who was both an Herbalist and an Iridologist, Kelley began her own quest for health and knowledge. She changed her diet and began taking herbs daily. She felt empowered when her health improved, her energy levels increased, and the pain disappeared after more than a year of being stuck “on the couch” with the fibromyalgia.

    As her interest in alternative health grew, she no longer felt fulfilled working in a corporate setting. Her illness had given her the hidden gift of time for reflection. After much thought, Kelley realized she was ready to do something she was passionate about, so she began seeing clients at her home in Milton. She also started working part-time at a local herb shop, and has studied with various alternative health instructors, including Rosemary Gladstar, to learn even more about herbs and health.
    Today Kelley’s client base is expanding as she reaches out to humans and animals in need of health advice.  She has nine years experience as a practicing Herbalist and Iridologist under her belt and is always looking to expand her knowledge through further studies.  Kelley recently expanded her services to include office hours weekly at Milton Chiropractic.
    Kelley combines her experience as an herbalist with her degree in Animal Science to bring a holistic approach to the care of you and your animals. She uses many methods to help her clients, including herbs, diet and nutrition, flower essences, aromatherapy, nutritional supplements, lifestyle changes, detoxing, and Reiki. Each session is tailored to the client’s specific needs, both emotional and physical.

     When Kelley isn’t seeing clients or teaching classes, she’s busy taking care of and riding her horses, working in her herb garden and chasing her 6-year-old twin girls around!
