Susanna Reppert-Brill, the youngest of her four girls and husband David Brill operate The Rosemary House. Susanna grew up living and knowing the herb business and gardens with her mother. Susanna came to The Rosemary House everyday after school where she had a little desk for her crayons, papers and homework. She would listen to her mother answer endless questions and absorbed the herbal knowledge along with her milk and cookies. Eventually she worked after school and on Saturdays always willing to join in the herbal fun her mom created. After graduating from Penn State University she became manager of The Rosemary House. Susanna has continued to develop her herbal knowledge of all the amazing and practical uses of plants.
She has also completed a Herbal Medicine course at David Winston’s Herbal Therapeutics School of Botanical Medicine. Susanna attended this herbal training due to the increasing number of questions on the medicinal use of herbs she was receiving as the manager of The Rosemary House. With now close to 4 decades in the herbal business, Susanna’s love of herbs and their many uses shines through. Susanna is the secondary practitioner at The Rosemary House. She is the one most likely to answer your “quick question” on the phone or in the store but is also available for appointments for full personal consultation. Susanna is a sixth generation herbalist dating back to a German Herb Doctor, who worked in Poland, and will now be passing her knowledge onto the seventh generation, her sons Zachery and Cedar and daughter Angelica.
