Nile Noël Nussbaumer


Nile Noël Nussbaumer is an herbalist, a writer and a lover of the earth. 

She studied documentary filmmaking in college before working in public relations for nearly a decade and finally moving to London to study naturopathy and western herbal medicine for four years. Upon returning to Texas, she joined forces with her father in creating Plan T in hopes of greenifying her native Dallas. A growing concern for planetary and individual health is a driving force behind her mission to restore the harmony of nature within the community. Both Nile and Bernard share the desire to create a positive feedback loop between the city and its citizens.

Having lived on three continents and explored much of the earth along the way, she came to love nature and develop a deep connection to the forests and mountains of Switzerland where she grew up visiting often and where she now divides her time.
