Tell us your canna-story. What led you to this industry? What was your first endeavor and what piqued your interest about cannabis?
I’ve been involved in the cannabis industry for 11 years as an entrepreneur, investor, and advocate with my husband and business partner, Jay. We opened one of Colorado’s first dispensaries in 2009. In 2013, we started our consulting company, Canna Advisors and also joined Arcview as lifetime members. We’ve made over a dozen investments and mentored many more cannabis businesses over the years. WIN is absolutely my favorite group of people to connect with!
What is your favorite thing about working in cannabis and what keeps you excited about continuing to work in this space? What do you find to be unique about this industry?
My favorite thing is feeling like I am a part of something good. The cannabis industry touches so many things I am passionate about: health and wellness, social justice, diversity, new job creation, helping our economy, and healing the earth! (to name a few)
