My current projects focus primarily around my personal mission of increasing hemp consumer adoption as a way to build and connect communities in a sustainable way.
The path to hemp was carved out for me from birth in the great state of Kentucky. In 1996, our beloved governor Brereton Jones created the first post-prohibition hemp research council to investigate if hemp production could balance the tremendous losses causes by tobacco industry closures.
Less than 20 years later, Kentucky became the leader in hemp growing under the 2014 Farm Bill. But times have not always been rosey for hemp in Kentucky, and today many farmers face a massive crisis caused by oversupply.
I entered the hemp industry in 2017 with the goal of connecting the supply chain, delivering verified resources to consumers, and connecting the cannabis and hemp communities.
Before my venture into hemp, I spent twenty years in the commercial construction and roofing industry. This brought me to Texas in 2003 along with my husband Daniel Lakstins
. Through guest appearances on the Roofing Business Builder podcast and individual client consulting, I hope to work with others to create hemp adoption in commercial construction.
