ATTRACTION TO CAREER:

What first attracted me to the cannabis industry was having known loved ones who have lost lives and family members to opiate addiction and alcohol; knowing that this industry could give those that needed it an alternative method to healing or pain relief. What I have been gifted with, in this journey, is building a business partnership with my father; learning from his 40 plus years of business experience and being part of history; paving the way for this new industry in our state.

BEST PART OF YOUR DAY:

Apart from loving on my babies, it is that small window where it’s just my husband and me catching up eating snacks that we have hidden (okay, me eating snacks I have hidden — my husband is Keto King.)

HOPE TO BE REMEMBERED FOR:

Simply that I made people smile and to know that I made someone’s life better because I was a part of it. (It is also alright if they say that “she had great hair”)

PERSON YOU MOST ADMIRE:

Hands down it will always by my mother. She is light and she is love. She was raised in an orphanage with her brother and sisters. She escaped an abusive home to call for help on a payphone at the age of 12. Despite the horror that she has faced, she worked to make sure that I had a different life. This lady has given the shirt off her back for strangers and chooses each day to love and finds joy for herself in the smiles of others.
