Founder. Doer. dreamer.

An avid learner and social entrepreneur, Mary is forever seeking new ways to unite the community around the cause of holistic health.

After spending the majority of her teens and twenties as a student of clinical herbalism. Mary earned an A.S in Community Health Education and a B.S in Sustainable Business Management before moving on to pursue graduate studies in Orgonizational Development and Leadership.

She utilizes this unique skill set to support charitable organizations, community initiatives, and herbal education platforms nationwide. She established the Bridge City Botanical Collective in 2010, a free-school community of over 300 holistic health teachers offering classes across the state of Oregon. This collaborative study model would later inspire the creation of Sativa Science Club.

Through cannabis, Mary sees the unique opportunity to reach a profoundly sincere and deeply curious community with a message of collaboration, education, and the true power of medicinal plants.

It is her sincere belief that, together, cannabis businesses and their advocates have the power to influence the vote and change the way that people think about natural medicine for the better.

In her spare time, Mary teaches grant writing, and creative entrepreneurship workshops at local universities, and sits on the executive board of the Oregon Craft Cannabis Alliance.
