With extensive years of service in negotiating discounts for a wide range of industries, Dawn is able to take that experience and apply it to the cannabis industry.  She successfully provides the industry with discounts that would not have otherwise been available to them.  She's lovely to work with, extremely responsive and always willing to go above and beyond.
