At Bloom Farms we are incredibly lucky to have the team that we do. We want to share with you the heart and dedication from behind the scenes that ultimately make BF what is is today! This month we would like to introduce you to Alexis! Alexis is our Southern California Brand Team Manager and is the key player that holds all of SoCal together.
What are some of your favorite hobbies? / What do you do “for fun”?
I come from an ultra-artistic background, so I like to do things that challenge me creatively. I sing, paint, play the piano, write fiction and poetry, and dance.
What do you do to relax?
I love being outdoors, so to clear my mind I love to go on hikes with good friends and get massages afterwards.
Best rainy day activity?
Find a cozy spot, drink something warm, and read a good book.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Life is challenging. Why not work hard doing something you love?
Do you have any creative outlets? Can you describe them to me?
I’ve been playing the piano and dancing for 20 years; I’ve also found an outlet in creative writing and in painting. While I don’t perform anymore, it’s still something I hold closely to my heart. I’ll still take classes from time to time, and my house if filled with music and artwork.
How does medical marijuana personally benefit you?
Medical Marijuana is my glass of wine after a stressful day, or a beer when I’m out with my good friends. It helps me relax when I feel anxious or stressed.
If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things could you not live without?
My German Shepherd Maisie (for survival and companionship), a knife, and canteen.
What brought you to Bloom Farms?
I was working for an ad agency that specialized in cause-marketing, natural products, and active lifestyles when I discovered Bloom Farms. I also happened to be working on a Cannabis deck at the time, so it was a perfect fit.
What do you enjoy most about working with Bloom Farms?
I am incredibly grateful to work alongside such a dedicated and caring team. We all have a passion for what we do, and that makes going to work something we look forward to.
In what ways do you feel that Bloom Farms stand out in the Cannabis Industry?
Bloom Farms is looking to change the way people think about cannabis. As a 1-for-1 company, our results and successes are measured by the impact we make in our own community. We genuinely care about our patients, support their interests and lifestyles, and recognize that our community is more than just the stoner stigma.
What accomplishment in your life are you most proud of?
I am most proud of where I am today. Thank you Bloom Farms for giving me the platform to make my ideas a reality.
What excites you most about the future of Bloom Farms?
This industry is booming, and we are only getting started!
