I currently own a CBD and brokerage business in the DFW area, and I am in the process of opening an industrial scale extraction facility with several partners. I have been a student of this industry for nearly 2 years, and I am incredibly excited for what the future of the industry holds in Texas and beyond. I have been to numerous industry conferences, both alternative medicine and hemp/cannabis specific.  I would be proud to join this organization as a coordinator for our farmers, manufactures, municipal officials, and consumers.

I am a native Texan and a UT Longhorn, raised in Fort Worth, TX and now living in Dallas, TX. I have been in the healthcare consulting business most of my life, and have now transitioned into the wholesale CBD business for healthcare providers. I am completely committed to seeing TX become the leading state in the nation for high quality CBD hemp and intend on doing through my company, TriMark Therapeutics. This industry has the potential to transform this great State, and I look forward to being a part of it.

As a Longhorn with almost two decades in education and international development (East Africa), I am shifting my focus to the endless and exciting promises of hemp. My family company will sell and buy hemp seeds for growing and nutrition with an emphasis on female farmers, corporate responsibility, and community empowerment with the vision to reduce world malnutrition through hemp seeds: our superfood.

I have worked as an Emergency Manager in Texas for 14 years. I have work at the local, state, and federal levels of government. I have routinely coordinated and collaborated with multiple agencies and partners to achieve identified objectives in responding to and recovery of disasters and emergencies. I understand the importance of working with others , obtaining buy-in and leveraging resources to achieve mission success. I have been looking forward to passage of the HB 1325 and ready to take the leap in supporting Texas entry into the hemp industry and establishing a collaborative effort in unifying Texas new/and experience farmers towards common goals.

I grew up on a sheep and grain farm in Wisconsin. We are currently growing @2000 hemp plants on two acres on one our farms. This is our first year. We would like to start growing on our ranch in Lovelady as soon as licensing is available. I am a legal and insurance claim consultant by trade. In that line of work I am constantly putting together informational and educational meetings. These events have ranged in size from 2-3000. I couldn’t be more excited about hemp in Texas and I am convinced that I would be an extremely valuable team member in promoting hemp and the association. As well as finding a way to provide desperately needed information and education to the farmers.
