What do you love most about working in the Cannabis Industry?
I love all of the people that are part of this industry in every aspect. I love the advocates, physicians, lawyers, entrepreneurs, and the list goes on. Entering into this industry was and is a risk because it is federally illegal, it is evolving and there is still so much that is unknown about all of the medicinal properties of this plant. I think it takes a special group of people to be willing to set out on this explorative journey. We are making a difference by expanding of our knowledge with new medical discoveries and shaping the laws of our country to benefit society into the future. It is very exciting to be a part of this emerging industry.

Who has been the biggest influence on your career?
Always the driving force for what I do in life revolves around my family. As a mother of three, I want to teach my children to follow their heart and passion and do what makes them feel fulfilled. I also want them to be cognizant of the world and community in which they live and do what they can to make it a better place.
My maternal grandparents were survivors of the Holocaust. They survived unimaginable circumstances and immigrated to the United States to provide a better life and opportunities for their children and future generations. Where they came from and how they survived definitely influence my path to becoming a lawyer. Originally I wanted to do immigration and international law, but life always presents different paths and I ended up pursuing family law. I always knew that I wanted to pick a profession that would help families. By focusing on women's empowerment, cannabis, the arts, and health and wellness, I feel like I continue to help people and families to live a better life through mental, emotional, and physical well-being.
