What do you love most about working in the Cannabis Industry?
This is an industry where relationships are critical for success and to meet new people and connect them with one another gives me a great amount of fulfillment. We have the opportunity to write the narrative for how things COULD be and right the wrongs of prohibition.

Who has been the biggest influence on your career?
My Dad is my champion and always has been. He spent my lifetime teaching me the important lessons in life and that my future was mine to create - he gave me my integrity, my grit, and my ethics. Then he let me go make it happen encouraging me and listening without telling me what to do.
