Tell us your canna-story. What led you to this industry? What was your first endeavor and what piqued your interest about cannabis?
In 2012, I heard from a friend whose son had the same time of rare epilepsy as my son that her son was seizure free on medical cannabis. I advocated in 2014 for the medical cannabis bill in Maryland. I went to the first national Women Grow event, which was a lobby days in DC in February 2015 with NCIA and met extraordinary women who inspired me and made me laugh.
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?
