Meet the Team: ShaVonne
ShaVonne shines inside and out, and we are so thankful to have her on Team Calypso! Like many of our team members, ShaVonne was brand new to medical marijuana but soon learned all about best practices and special nuances of the industry. She’s shown tremendous growth and initiative within the past few months, which is why she was promoted to Nutrient Team Lead. To learn more about ShaVonne, check out our employee interview below:
How long have you worked at Calypso, and what’s your role?
“I started with Calypso back in September of last year, so it’s been about 10 months. I was hired onto the Cultivation Team but have since been promoted to Nutrient Team Lead. I’m grateful for the opportunity and looking forward to learning more about medical marijuana in this role.”
How do you start your mornings and/or end your days at Calypso?
“My mornings start with arriving to work on time, every time! I greet our friendly security officers and trust them with my post prized possession—my phone! Then, I make my way over to Central Feed to check-in with my fellow “Aqua Mafia” team members to look at the day’s workload.”
What’s surprised you most about working in the medical marijuana industry?
“What’s surprised me most is how versatile medical marijuana is… not only are there hundreds of different strains, but these strains can transform into a variety of forms (oils, concentrates, tinctures, etc.). And with all these different options, it makes sense that it can help treat a range of medical conditions. Currently, I am not a medical marijuana patient but I plan to get my card soon, especially after learning and hearing first-hand how patients benefit from the program.”
What’s something that most people don’t know about you?
“Something that most people don’t know about me is I love DIY arts and crafts—specifically, dessert-related challenges. One of my favorite things to do is bake and design cakes, like really big cakes!”
