My name is Anistacia, and I am enchanted with water. Probably even obsessed. I have the distinct honor of belonging to one of the earliest cadres of certified water sommeliers in the United States. I live in Colorado but travel internationally to visit water sources and meet with fellow water sommeliers, scientists and experts to study and learn about waters. I share my experiences on my youtube channel @waterapothecary.

I have a career background in documentary filmmaking and degrees in Communications (BA) and Ethnic Studies (MA). I hold water studies certificates from MSU, Denver’s One World One Water Center, and Columbia University Water Center. I am a member of the Water Sommelier Union, the Balneology Association of North America, and the World Water Community.
