What do you?
Currently, I’m the MIP Director for Northeast Alternatives based in Massachusetts. We’re building out a wholesaling program through the purchase and operation of large scale kitchen and packaging equipment needed for an exponential increase in production.
What is the Hardest part of what you do, and the Best part of it?
How did you discover cannabis and why did you get into it?
I discovered cannabis as a useful tool to decrease my stress and anxiety. I am an extremely high strung person and can easily become over stimulated. Cannabis helps me to stay attentive to extremely important details and remain calm during stressful times. I started making extracts and edibles at home when my mother was terminally ill with cancer. The benefits it had on her last years of life were astounding. A year after she passed away I took my first, entry level position with a cannabis company, eager to continue to help those that need an alternative form of medicine.
What do you tell people who want to get in this industry?
For those looking to get into this industry… DO IT!! I started out in the trim room and have been a director at an operation level for four years now. We grow so quickly there are opportunities at every corner. Not only is there exceptional career potential in this industry but there are tangible rewards to your labors every day. It is such a rewarding experience… every day.
