Born & raised in the PNW, graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelor's of Science in Biology & a minor in Environmental Science Resource Management. Once the people of WA state voted to legalize cannabis for recreational use in 2012 I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life; bring a well-loved, quality product to the masses just as I had with friends and family. I am stubborn yet positive and I get excited when something is new, risky or complicated.
