In 1990 Glenn and I had a head on collision and suffered severe internal and back injuries. After years of pharmaceutical use and multiple surgeries, we decided to try natural alternatives and became medical cannabis patients having great success in treating ourselves and later became caregivers to be able to help others with quest for health and healing. We started our own alternative wellness consulting and specialty garden business, Homegrown Healthcare of Maine LLC where we specialize in helping those with cancer, and ptsd and pain. In 2010 we joined many others in a group called the Affirmative Defense Action Committee to help restructure the Medical Marijuana Program through LD 1296 that is now voted the #1 medical marijuana program for patients in the Nation by the Americans for Safe Access Org. In 2011 I was asked to join the board of MMCM Trade Association to help advocate for patient and caregiver rights at the state legislature. I became the director of education in 2012 and started teaching a variety of classes at the University of Maine in Augusta Klahr Center and various locations across the state to educate patients, caregivers, law enforcement and anyone interested in learning about the Medical Marijuana Program laws, business set up, client care, cultivation and more. Together with other board members and volunteers, I helped create the largest industry trade show (Home Grown Maine) on the east coast for the past 5 years. I became the Chair of the Board for MMCM in September 2015.
