When we think about Women to Watch, there are many notable candidates within our growing Missouri market. Our pick for this installment of the series was a no-brainer – Jamie Dennis, Regional Manager at COCO Dispensaries has been quietly emerging as a true leader in the space and we’re so pleased to feature her for Women to Watch.
The cannabis industry as a whole is known for storytelling, in fact, the reason many of us chose this industry is because of our own experience with the plant. Jamie is no exception, her own cannabis “story” is a compelling one. After working in the pharmacy industry both as an entrepreneur at 16 and for CVS for nearly 10 years, Jamie was recruited by Green Thumb Industries, better known as GTI, one of the nation’s largest MSOs, to be a GM for a dispensary. It was at that time, working in the Illinois market, that she started using cannabis. Dennis was suffering from sleep disorders as well as mental health concerns and noticed when using cannabis that her symptoms were lessened far more than with any of the prescription cocktails that her physicians were insisting were important for her health.
