Why & how I joined the cannabis industry – by Executive Assistant Bree Hess
Most industries around the world are often dominated by men in what can only be described as a “boys club”. Thankfully for the growing cannabis industry, our female leaders have been stepping in and making a huge influence on our industry. In fact, most of our Therapy Tonics mentors & employees are women of cannabis and we couldn’t be more proud.
Last week we were invited to attend an event in San Diego titled “Executive Women in Cannabis : Exploring Emerging Opportunities”, like many localized events and panels we attend we often bring team members to help educate attendees on our Therapy Tonics products and offer up polite conversation about the culture and ethos of the Therapy brand. This week through our usual speaker CEO Chris Coggan was unable to join us as he was out sick. But fortunately, our very own Executive Assistant – Bree Hess was able to step in and offer up her story on how and why she got involved in the Cannabis Industry and how it has vastly improved her quality of life. In hindsight, Bree ended up representing this particular discussion from a female point of view much better than Chris ever could, and we are glad she was able to step up and knock it out of the park. We were able to capture her story here.
