Jetzi launched Botanica Lilith during the Summer of 2020. In response to an ancestral calling, she knew she had to spread the knowledge of food sovereignty, holistic healing, and the magical power of herbs & roots. Whether she’s loading her camera or sowing seeds, Jetzi is focused on preserving and healing her community. Growing up in Chicago provided her a unique vantage point to launch an eclectic career combining artwork, spirituality and community care.

She’s been shooting film for over fifteen years, capturing hundreds of musicians like Chromeo, Chance the Rapper, M.I.A, Cardi B & more. She studied Photography & Political Science at Parsons School Of Design & DePaul University. She has extensive production and project managing experience, working alongside New York DJ Venus X and her club night GHE20G0TH1K, fashion label Hood By Air and other talented creators like Elise Swopes.
Being an Afro-Latinx woman informs her spiritual and organizational work. She’s held dozens of workshops on photography, spiritual protection, liberation and mental health. These days, Jetzi has dedicated herself full time into the world of Web3. She’s the Project Manager for Sunrise Art Club, a creative impact agency that partners with Sunrise Holders to produce innovative and impactful projects that improve the lives of underrepresented people. Her most recent project launched on Juneteenth of this year, the first NFT gallery featuring incarcerated artists, Night on the Yard: Confined by Stars.

Jetzi's Grandmothers, Trinity & Raquel, started the garden behind the home where her parents currently reside. They planted plenty of flowers, but there’s a special rosebush that continues to bloom every Summer. Not only is this rosebush a beautiful reminder of our ancestor's continued blessings – but the rose petals went on to inspire some of the botanica’s best-selling products. Using these home-grown flowers and herbs, she creates anointing oils, fixed candles, and thoughtfully-packaged kits available in her shop.
