Here’s their introduction……

Seattle native Alisa Stack recently joined Takoma Wellness Center in Washington, D.C. as General Manager. As is the case with so many new entrants to the legal cannabis industry, her entry is anything but traditional. A 20-year veteran of the Department of Defense, Stack spent two years in Afghanistan as Deputy Chief of Staff for Stability Operations in Kabul. She was responsible for development and oversight of detention policy, including operations at Guantanamo Bay, and was a specialist on issues relating to terrorism.

Stack also brings an impressive educational background, including a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations from the University of Washington, a Master of Science from the National War College and a Master of International Affairs from Columbia University. We reached out to Alisa to better understand her transition to the cannabis industry and how leading companies in the space are finding talent from unusual sources.
