THE SHAMAN (TOUR GUIDE)
I’m originally from Central NY, right in the Adirondack Mountains. My professional background is in nursing. My family is either military or medical for the most part. Guess I’m the oddball. Before My 420 Tours, I was working for another cannabis tour company and going to concerts as much as possible.
I kind of grew up around cannabis without knowing it. As a nurse, I never felt right administering handfuls of synthetic pharmaceuticals to the people I was caring for. One thing led to another, and I transitioned from health care to cannabis. Luckily I have a really supportive family that supports my love for this medicine. I’m still pushing my knowledge of the plant further — as most of us are — but it’s a great experience to be able to do so in beautiful Colorado.
What’s your favorite thing to buy at the dispensary?
I honestly go in phases, and change what I consume by the month but mostly concentrates.
What’s your top advice for travelers to Denver?
Be prepared to not want to leave. Denver as a city is amazing but what surrounds the city is what makes Colorado the best place to be. The beer and cannabis are cool but most importantly the mountains are what keep us all so humble.
