Susun interviews Jill Stansbury.
Dr Stansbury is an ethnobotanist and outdoor enthusiast and leads Ethnobotany field courses in the Andes and Manu region of the Peruvian Amazon each July. She has built a humble home in Cuzco and hosts studies in cultural anthropology, oral history collection, ethnobotany, and the mystical and healing traditions with four different tribal communities. She is presently documenting and organizing traditional ethnobotanical wisdom in order to give it back to the various tribes when the time is right. She became adept at the Spanish language to conduct this research, and know plants names in 4 additional tribal languages including Matsigenka, Bora, Wachiperi, and Yaguas.
She is the mother of two adult children, and her hobbies include art, photography, playing the guitar and singing with friends, gardening, camping, cooking and studying quantum and metaphysics and international travel. When she’s not traveling or working, she can most likely be found in her garden.
