Jennifer Germano began working in the Colorado Marijuana Industry in 2009 after she transitioned over from working in commercial kitchens for 23 years in the restaurant industry.
She worked her way from the ground floor through every employee and management position in medical dispensaries to the level of director of operations of a multi-million dollar retail dispensary and cultivation operation in 2014.

Jennifer understands the commitment that is required when working with all employees and understands the value of leading and championing them to strive to be their best.

Spring 2019 Jennifer was selected for “100 People You Should Know” in the Cannabis & Hemp Industry.
“The Cannabis Industry is taking off, but that wouldn’t be possible without the people behind it. Whether its operating an outstanding business, farming hemp, working to pass laws, spreading awareness of the plethora of beneficial uses of the plant, or just giving the surrounding culture a voice through their art, the people on this list are doing just that and they deserve some recognition. There is no shortage of people pitching in, but we at HC Magazine have put together a list of some of the people you should definitely be aware of if you are passionate about Cannabis.” – Hemp Connoisseur Magazine 2019 Spring Issue
