Chief Communications Officer with 15+ years' experience working in close partnership with entrepreneurial founders, visionary investors, public company CEOs, world-class boards of directors, philanthropic thought leaders, disruptive causes and iconic brands to create transformative change within organizations, industries, local communities and society as a whole. I have led global corporate, crisis and financial communications for Starbucks, built four startups from the ground up into some of the cannabis industry's leading brands (Tilray, Leafly, Marley Natural), took the first cannabis company public on a U.S. stock exchange (NASDAQ:TLRY), restructured and currently lead the communications function at a prominent family foundation, and advised multinational brands and a foreign government on reputation, crisis, and issues management at two of the world's largest PR agencies (Edelman and APCO Worldwide). I approach my work with a deep sense of humility, purpose, accountability and belief in shared success. I am known for being a mission-driven, strategic, innovative, scrappy, collaborative, candid, hands-on leader who is fun to work alongside. And I pride myself on building high-performing teams that deliver award-winning results.

Founded in 2010 in Seattle by three visionary entrepreneurs with decades of experience in investment banking and venture capital, we represent a group of investors from around the world seeking to end cannabis prohibition and the social harms it causes. Through a combination of acquisitions, investments and incubation, we are focused on building a portfolio of global brands that will lead, legitimize and define the future of cannabis. We have three fundamental beliefs: 1. Cannabis is a mainstream product consumed by mainstream people; 2. The end of cannabis prohibition is inevitable; and 3. Brands will determine the future of the cannabis industry. We are set apart by the depth of hands-on management and investment experience of our team, which includes Ivy League MBAs, PhD research scientists, marketing professionals and operators from world-leading brands, and even former federal law enforcement professionals. In an industry stigmatized by negative perceptions and substandard business practices, we are elevating consumer expectations through consistent quality and service. When prohibition ends, we intend to hold the most enviable position in the market and to generate enormous returns – both financial and social.
