I met Kristin the way most people meet nowadays, via Facebook, we met in the POC in Cannabis group where we discovered our shared views and agenda. It was rare a few years back to meet another Asian in cannabis, but now I am happily finding more entering and coming out of the "green closet". At any cannabis event I am always going up and introducing myself to fellow Asians because I want to hear their story. Kristin is the executive director of the Cannabis Cultural Association as well as a top consultant for acquisitions, real estate, due diligence and marketing. Kristin is based in NYC and we are honored to have her here on AACE. - Ophelia Chong
