BETHAN

Quality Assurance Manager (QAP, RPIC)

“As long as we have a common goal, and we’re willing to work together, we can create great experiences with all the regulatory bodies and consumers.”

“As long as we have a common goal, and we’re willing to work together, we can create great experiences with all the regulatory bodies and consumers.”

ROLE

I’m really proud of what we’ve created from scratch. I built the entire quality management system in compliance with ACMPR regulations from Health Canada. My whole career I’ve been working on the quality management side of things, in highly regulated industries. For the last few years, I’ve been auditing other facilities and suppliers. I’ve seen some great examples of strengths and weaknesses. It gives me a really solid foundation to help the team build this business.

STORY

I got the proverbial call out of the blue (while sitting in a farmers’ market in Calgary). A friend figured my skill set would be perfect in this budding new industry. I wanted to be close to my family and not travel too far. Boaz had started-up in Calgary, so it was perfect. I got invited to walk through the front door (and now I monitor the alarms on that same door).

PASSION

I just love regulated environments (yeah, I know that sounds weird to some of you). I’m organized and I draw on past experience. I can interpret and translate complex regulations into a workable plan for real people. Inspections in our industry are really designed for protection and safety.

SUPER
POWER

SHAPE SHIFTER – I can work and communicate with anybody. And I’ll ferret out the root cause. I don’t believe the problem is ever with the people. I believe it’s always about the training or the processes.

“There is no other plant like it in the world. No gardener will do for their plants or their crops what we’ll do for ours.”

ROLE

I maintain a healthy cycle of growth patterns for our plants in our facility, while ensuring operational excellence. I have an extensive agricultural background; growing tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, cherry tomatoes, roses, olives, oranges, mandarins and lemons. We cannabis growers are considered the most advanced gardeners on the planet. Nobody else will spend the money, time and effort to produce the most perfect environment for their plants as we do for cannabis.

STORY

I planted my first tree with my grandfather when I was five. Forty years later, we still pick oranges off of that tree in the backyard of our family home in Greece. He taught me so many agricultural tricks. When all the other kids were on the beach, they couldn’t get me away from the fields. From 5:30 AM, I remember riding a donkey over a field and working all day with my family. Eventually, the cannabis industry chose me. It really wasn’t my choice; it was inevitable given my great love for this plant. I have the utmost respect for it.

PASSION

I really love the team here. Honestly, I think I have the coolest job in the world. I challenge anyone to rebut that! I bring a lot of experience and a lot of comedy to our team. I love laughing, I love making people laugh and I love it when people make me laugh. It’s a big part of my day.

“Everywhere else I’ve gone it’s only been about the money (with poor product and unhappy employees). This is about having fun and growing the coolest plant on the planet.”

ROLE

I’m the legs and the hands of the operation. If something needs doing, I’ll get it done. I have experience on the medicinal side, to help guide us through regulations and best practices. Most things are a simple fix but most people won’t do it. I’m not afraid to ask the tough questions, always striving for improvement, always trying to do more.

STORY

I used to play football but I got really banged up. My sports career was compromised from a serious injury. I’m in pain most of the time but this medicine helps me deal with it. I could have given up, sat around, and been on disability. I’m here because I want to contribute. I get bored sitting on my ass. In this industry, there aren’t a lot of people who are willing to just go do it. That was why I was hired. There’s a lot of talk, talk, talk, but there’s sh*t to do!

PASSION

I love that we’re small and we’re privately owned and we’re trying to disrupt the market! As a consumer, or someone who wants to join this team, or who gives a crap, there’s a new way to work. I was angry at this industry when I first came here, until I met Dave, and this team. He understood me and he knows who’s a good fit for the sustainable future of this industry.

STUBBORNNESS – A lot of people wondered why I didn’t just quit the industry but I was stubborn. There’s not a lot of people my age driven like I am.

“I love doing new stuff all the time and challenging myself… coming from the days of skydiving to competitive hangliding to bungee jumping out of a hot air balloon! I am always looking for adventures, excitement and new challenges. Life is all about taking calculated risks!”

ROLE

My roots in oil and gas have given me the necessary people skills, the experience to turn organizations around and ability to build successful companies from the ground up. It’s a unique skill set to be able to put in the right structures, systems, processes and schedules in place while building and motivating a team to drive forward a complex project on a very tight timeline.

STORY

I was a senior executive and owner of an engineering firm in the oil and gas industry. I was born into it the industry, seen boom and bust and in 2014 I watched the whole industry fall apart again. Only this time I wanted to do something more; it was a time of change for me. I wanted to be part of a movement, a real leader of change on a much bigger scale. During this time the cannabis industry was being born, with so much innovation and the potential to help people. I’ve seen the benefits. I started learning everything I could about cannabis and it grew from there. The industry was not the usual stereotypes we expected; my eyes opened. There was a synergy and excitement in this budding industry, and I wanted to be a leader in this industry.

PASSION

I loved building the company from scratch… everything, right from the initial drawings, design and layout, with my own hands. We had no templates, nothing. Bethan brought her pharmaceutical background for the license application, while I brought stakeholder engagement and application experience from a heavily regulated federal/provincial oil and gas industry, and then Bill and Eli joined us to complete our team. We really pulled together. I just love start-ups and the energy of start-ups. Every day we see an outcome and every day we have to be prepared for not knowing what will happen that day. The cannabis industry is like no other industry: it changes day-to-day based on the regulatory environment, social acceptance, the medical and recreational sides. You need to have foresight, be willing to take risks and be able to pivot and change quickly as the industry changes.
