If you can’t already tell by her bright, contagious smile, Jenn is one of the most kindhearted people you will ever cross paths with. She’s truly a salt-of-the-earth wonder woman, and we are incredibly grateful to have her on our team! Read our first-ever employee interview to learn more about Jenn:
How long have you worked at Calypso, and what’s your role?
“Since September 2019, Client Services Manager.”
How do you start your mornings and/or end your days at Calypso?
“When I first walk in the building, I say hello to as many people as I see, maybe an exploding fist bump here and there. Spreading positive energy and connecting with people is important to me. My days end when I finish everything that needs completed. Unfinished tasks give me anxiety. I have enough of that, lol, so it calms me to complete as much as possible.”
What’s surprised you most about working in the medical marijuana industry?
“The casualness, and I LOVE that! I can wear jeans and t-shirts to work and business meetings. I also realized early on that this is a hugging industry. I’m a hugger at heart. I’ve met several customers and we hugged after our first meeting. Such a great way for authentic connection.”
You shared that you are a medical marijuana patient, what’s your preferred method of treatment?
“Yes, I’m a proud patient. I don’t have a preferred method of treatment because I rely on several throughout the day. Before work I use a 2:1 CBD:THC tincture. It calms the constant energy in my head that can turn into a migraine or severe tightness in my neck, yet leaves me fully capable to drive and complete my daily tasks. After work at home, depending on how my head feels, I’ll micro-dose a balanced myrcene vape. At night, just before bed, I use a high THC tincture and if need be, I’ll use a high myrcene vape to help calm me to go to bed easily and sleep through the night. I medicate to not get high. I medicate to keep my symptoms in check, and to get a good night’s sleep without waking up groggy.”
What’s something that most people don’t know about you?
“I’m a pretty open book, I put who I am out there, but maybe something that doesn’t come up in most conversations is I have a worm composting bin in my basement that’s quite productive. I love the ease of vermiculture and lessening my home’s carbon footprint while providing the most nutrient dense compost to my gardens.”
