I have worked for medical cannabis reform in Kansas for almost nine years. I am President and a Founder of Bleeding Kansas Advocates and Secretary for the Kansas Cannabis Business Association. I have contributed to the writing of three medical cannabis bills, and have been a registered volunteer lobbyist working at our state capitol for many years. I manage all social media and websites for BKA and social media for KSCBA. I write for a Kansas City area cannabis magazine and have written opinion pieces for Kansas newspapers. My passions are patient rights and the economic transformative power of the cannabis industry to revitalize entrepreneurship, rural areas and invigorate job creation.
