Cassandra is a conjure womyn & creator. She is an ancestor- and community-taught life-student of afro-diasporic herb medicine and magick. As a past front-line grassroots activist, Cassandra’s work remains dedicated to the healing of two-spirit, trans and queer IBPOC. Her writing has been published in From the Root Zine, Illustrated Impact, Briarpatch Magazine and The Peak’s ‘Medicine Issue’, to name a few.
She recently founded Crystal Root & Conjure, a curios company & apothecary that is rooted in the cultural and spiritual practice of afro-diasporic folk magic and medicine, otherwise known as ‘root work’ or ‘doctoring the root.’ She uses nature based alchemy and ritual to blend fresh and dried herbs, roots and minerals into mixtures for protection, healing and self care.
She is currently an apotheker at The Witches Brew in Toronto, is working on a queer POC children’s book, and pursuing her dream of becoming a birth worker & healer in afrodiasporic tradition, inclusive of the trans & queer IBPOC community.
