How did you end up working for Good Chemistry?
I met Matt back in 2010. We would run into each other through various cannabis industry meetings held at different dispensaries. At the time I was growing and running a retail store for a competitor. We stayed in touch and eventually met up to discuss an opportunity, managing the Colfax store. I just left my prior job and was debating on staying in the industry. I met with Matt and connected with his passion for the industry and drive to help make cannabis legal. Matt had an extremely positive, but rare attitude about the Industry and I wanted to be a part of his team.
What is your role?
I oversee operations to ensure patients and customers have the highest quality products and services in a safe and secure environment. I am responsible for budgeting, seed-to-sale inventory tracking and management, state and local regulatory compliance, policy and procedure development, staff hiring, training and management. Another aspect of my job is to manage the company’s Compassion Care Program, which provides marijuana products to hardship patients at minimal or no cost. In short, I manage the business side of both the Aurora and Colfax location, make sure the staff is happy and working hard, and provide remarkable product to everyone who walks in the door.
What makes you come to work every day?
The culture we have built here at Good Chemistry is undeniable and makes my job fun and rewarding. I genuinely enjoy all of the people who work for GC so it doesn’t make coming to work a chore. Having an energetic, passionate crew has helped make Good Chemistry what it is today. Another aspect of my job I love is educating the Good Chemistry customer on remarkable cannabis. Being able to help people make their lives better through cannabis is extremely satisfying and why I do what I do.
What has been your favorite project at Good Chemistry?
Building the Aurora store was an incredible project, but my favorite project is actually one that is still in the works. This particular project will change how people view cannabis and the industry as a whole. It has been a blast to develop and I cannot wait to see how people react to it when it goes live during this year’s 4/20 festivities.
Where would you like to see Good Chemistry in the next 5 years?
In the next 5 years I would like to see Good Chemistry become a household name in regards to quality cannabis. I can also envision a few more retail stores and grows in Colorado with a couple grows or stores, out-of-state.
What are some of the things you like to do outside of work?
I love spending time with my family; Preeya and I have twin boys, so we are very busy. I still get out to play basketball, work out, read, and enjoy/assess fine cannabis.
