Hemp stole Annie's heart in 2009 when the plant was a paper topic for an environmental economics class. Her research took her down a life-changing journey. Over the next decade she worked with legislators, researchers, editors and industry stakeholders to help change laws, build markets, and educate the community.
Annie is a published podcaster and writes for Hemp Magazine. She served on the Kentucky Hemp Industries Association Board of Directors and still serves on the Hemp Feed Coalition Steering Committee. Annie earned her Bachelor's of Science in Economics from the University of Kentucky & a Master's in International Environmental Policy and Business Administration from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey.
