Jason ranked as one of the Top 10 Account Representatives in Major League Soccer (MLS) working with the Vancouver Whitecaps.

Jason’s advice for transitioning into a career in the Cannabis Industry: “Don’t be afraid to wear a lot of hats in the beginning. Roll up your sleeves and pitch in with Operations, even if you intend to work within Corporate Services, or vice-versa. The more we all learn and know about different roles, the more harmonious the company and industry can be”
