In an effort to cultivate community, compliance, and chuckles, Trax Team Solutions will be featuring various cannabis industry stakeholders in what we call, “Adventures In Cannabis.”
“Heather, please tell us about your wildest and/or favorite experience working in the cannabis industry thus far.”
“I moved to CO in 2006 to pursue natural medicine and the mountains. My good friend, who is an herbalist, suggested I get into the medical marijuana industry when it was first starting in Colorado, but I was afraid to do so. It took several years before I got out of my own way and found myself on the cannabis path.
I attended the Women Grow Leadership Summit in February of 2016 and saw several amazing women speak about the industry. I was so inspired and when I saw Maureen McNamara of Cannabis Trainers speak, I knew I had to work on her team!
The rest is history. I’ve been with Cannabis Trainers since March 2016 and I have the best job in the world! I have the freedom to define my position and I really enjoy my flexible schedule.
“I am so grateful to have met some of the most incredible people in my life. My experience has been one of inclusion and genuinely kind people. Maureen encourages and inspires me daily. It makes me happy to share the wisdom of this beautiful plant with so many people. I also love connecting with people to share information about our compliance training classes.” – Heather Walls
