CannActive Life

Tell us your canna-story. What led you to this industry? What was your first endeavor and what piqued your interest about cannabis?

I had been investing in Cannabis real estate for about 5 years when I was ready to move up and start angel investing. I started going to Arcview events and found a community that was welcoming and way less stiff than your average investing community! I noticed that there was a lack of women and athletes being represented. So I stuck around, and created my company CannActive Life. The focus is on incorporating CBD into your daily regimen to keep up on exercise and live a healthier life. It has been great. Products rolling out soon!

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?

I get to help and educate people. My Bookkeeping business helps others, but my CBD business is where I get the one on one, personal interaction that I crave. I get to mix two of my favorite things, exercise and CBD!

What do you think is the next BIG THING in Cannabis?

Higher Powered CBD, Business Banking access, New Cannabinoids being showcased (THCV)

What is a little known fact about yourself? What are some of your interests and hobbies?

I am a former competitive swimmer, and now teach water fitness to adults in my area. I get my workout fix twice a week, and get paid too! I’ve introduced a lot of my swim clients to CBD and the many benefits of the plant.

Who is someone that inspires your work?

Dara Torres, Martha Stewart, Jeanne Sullivan is my Spirit Animal
