  • Sheena Novemeber - Retail Store Director


    Sheena is our Retail Store Director and oversees the Mountain Rose Herbs Mercantile, as well as future retail endeavors of the company. With nearly two decades of customer service experience, she loves cultivating strong relationships, especially with fellow herb enthusiasts. Sheena earned her bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies from the University of Oregon and her master’s degree in Complementary and Alternative Medicine from the American College of Healthcare Sciences. She has worked with our native flora at the Mt. Pisgah Plant Nursery and spent over six years co-managing SeQuential Biofuels Retail. An Oregonian for most of her life, she quickly fell in love with the beauty and wonderment of the Pacific Northwest. She is passionate about handcrafting her own herbal body care products, folk medicine, and candlemaking. Her interests lie in botany, ecology, photography, mushroom foraging, herbal wildcrafting, gardening, and playing in the forests and rivers with her two sweet pups Juniper and Tulsi.

    Sheena's favorite picks: cardamom and ginger everything, cultivated white sage, beeswax pastilles, epsom salts, and our extensive line of oils.
  • Lydia Fish - Mercanitle Store Manager


    Lydia is our Mercantile Store Manager and has been a part of the Mountain Rose team since 2019. Born and raised in Eugene, Oregon, she grew up with a family that loved to camp year-round. Growing up in the Pacific Northwest taught her a deep admiration and a respectful relationship with nature at a young age. After a summer living and working in Yellowstone National Park, she knew that this relationship with our natural world was one that she wanted to bring into her professional career. In 2019 she received a Certified Herbalist certification through the internationally accredited Centre of Excellence. She loves being able to use this invaluable knowledge to serve those around her. She has studied Japanese culture and language for over a decade, and has travelled to Japan, South Korea, Mexico, and several states in the US. This has instilled in her a deep respect for different cultures which she carries into her daily life. Lydia enjoys working in a local music studio as a sound engineer, biking, traveling, and relaxing at home with her cat Cashew.
