Meet the women behind Appleseed Fertility!
Katinka Locascio LMT, FAE
Katinka has been charting her cycles since 2002 when she took her first class on FAM with Katie Singer, author of the Garden of Fertility. She spent a year apprenticing with Katie thereafter, and was amazed how much there was to learn about her cycles. She has dedicated the last 15 years studying the healing arts, including the Arivgo Techniques of Mayan Abdominal Therapies, and osteopathic manual therapy. She runs Earth + Sky Healing Arts, a wellness space in LIC, Queens, and in her practice focuses on reproductive health and fertility, as well as lecturing and teaching FAM. She's a mom of two FAM babies, Celeste and Galileo and is currently working to become a Certified Fertility Awareness Educator with Sarah Bly, of Grace of the Moon (expected graduation in Dec 2017). She loves her WINK thermometer and talking about charting with friends and colleagues.
Cassondra Moriarty FE, LLLL
Cassondra is a fertility awareness educator, postpartum doula, and lactation mentor based in New York City, where she lives with her 2 year old daughter and husband. She manages Earth + Sky Healing Arts alongside Katinka, and leads monthly La Leche League meetings to help nursing moms connect and get guidance on breastfeeding. Soon after ditching hormonal birth control in 2012, she became an ardent fertility awareness enthusiast. She even went so far as to make a senior thesis in film school on FAM. Miscontraceptions later showed in film festivals all over the country.
Now, as a FEMM certified instructor, she teaches women and teens how to chart their cycles. With a background in Catholicism, she is passionate about blending theology and biology. When not running after her toddler, she enjoys attempting to make her thumb green and listening to live jazz music.
