Q: With the start of a new year, what aspect of your role at the dispensary are you most excited about?

I’m most excited to be able to listen for new customer recommendations and continue to innovate our online menu, giving more accuracy and more detail on our products.

Q: What was your proudest moment from your work at Harvest in the past year?

My proudest moment would have to be receiving this promotion from Dispensary Associate to Inventory Supervisor within my first 6 months of work. When I came to Harvest I knew I was with good people who saw my potential, and that I could be successful with the fantastic team we’ve assembled.

Q: What's one thing you wish more people knew about the benefits of medical cannabis?

Medical cannabis comes in all forms, from flower, to oils, topicals and tinctures, drinks, gummies and even chocolates. Medical cannabis edible items can also be dietary-restriction friendly such as the vegan diet. This leaves lots of room to experiment with different forms of the same substance in order to best fit your day-to-day needs.

Q: As you start inventory management, what strategies have you found work the best?

What I’ve learned throughout my time as Inventory Supervisor, is that everyone has a different strategy to accomplish the same organizing goal, and putting the team first means that everyone has less work to be done so long as we’re all working together. My personal strategy though, is slow and steady wins the race. 

Q:Is there an unexpected item that is selling out the fastest?

I definitely have to give it to the Riviera Creek Infused Riv sticks, they’ve been in and out of the store faster than anything else, and in my experience, nothing else touches that level of potency at that price!

Q:Winter is in full swing. Do you have any favorite cannabis products or strains that you recommend for relaxation or cozy evenings?

This winter is a COLD one, so I’d recommend settling down at night with a nice cup of the UBGOOD hot cocoa mix and a Kiva chocolate bar in order to best enjoy the season. Though the Butterfly Effect infusion powder mixed into tea still is a nightly go-to.

Q: What would you be voted “Most Likely” for in a Harvest Yearbook?

Most likely to join a band.

Q:If you could teleport anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?

I’d go to Okinawa, Japan, although I’d need to bring my grandma with me since it’s where she grew up, I’d really love to see all of Japan using the public train system in a single trip. 

Q:What are some of your New Year’s Resolutions?

Exercise more, drink more water, and save money but don’t deprive.

Q:Would you rather always be cold or always be hot? Why?

I’d rather always be cold, because I can always bundle myself up but I can only un-bundle myself so much before someone has to call the police.

Q:What’s something you couldn’t live without?

I absolutely couldn’t live without my animals. I have two cats named Oatmeal and Tofu, and an Australian shepherd named Oliver.

Q:I think I’d choose to be Naruto Uzumaki, pretty self-explanatory, if you know you know.
