My name is Yvette Montoya and I’m a bruja, a medium, and healer born and raised in SoCal.
I follow the Caribbean and Mexican tradition of espiritismo and herbalism. I bring that worldview to my energy work, writing, and products. I’m an initiate of Santeria (not crowned) and a Priestess in Palo. I’m currently studying under master herbalist Karen Rose. I’ve been featured in Refinery29, Allure, Cosmopolitan, and HipLatina for my work.
I’ve also written on the topic of brujeria, spiritual hygiene, and ancestral veneration for outlets like Refinery29 and Popsugar.
