Mugs of RoC- John, Care Specialist, Research Coordinator

Y'all, I know I say this every month, but WHERE DOES THE TIME GO?! Maybe it's because I say that every month that it feels it's going by faster... time is all relative anyway. And that is exactly something team member John Matu would say, and that's my segue. This month I sat down with John Matu, RoC Research Coordinator, Orientation Leader and a Bilingual Care Specialist. He's a fellow southerner, hailing from the Bluegrass State, KY.

"What's in your stash bag?" with Heather Jackson, CEO of the Realm of Caring Foundation

Please tell us about yourself, your business, and what motivated you to get involved in the industry?

First, it is not an industry, it is a cause. You can quote me on that! :) My name is Heather Jackson, I am the CEO of the Realm of Caring Foundation and cannabis took over my life (sounds like I am at a 12 step program) after it saved my then 9-year-old son Zaki, who has a rare catastrophic form of childhood epilepsy. He transitioned from hospice to health. After his seizures remitted and he made huge strides in his development I wanted to dedicate my life to helping others who were in the same situation that my family was in. I co-founded a nonprofit called the Realm of Caring in 2012, and we received our 501(c)3 status in 2013. I may have come into cannabis by force, but it is my greatest honor to now spend my time helping others.

Mugs of RoC- Kelly, Care Specialist

Kelly is one of our newest Care Specialists here at RoC. She's only been here a month, but she jumped in with both legs and is totally RoC'n it!! Kelly is awesome. We knew her before she started, she is married to one of our favorite chiropractors, Dr. Gengler of Chiroworks (shameless plug, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you need a chiro in the Colorado Springs area, he has PLENTY of experience with kiddos with special needs, and he is my assumed holistic health coach LOL!), so of course we knew we'd love her. What we didn't know is that she has a BA in German AND Psychology, is a licensed massage therapist, taught at a community college and has worked extensively in the medical field... but as she says, she's a mom first and foremost! <3 She is smart as whip, nothing gets past this lady, and she's not afraid to share her mind and thoughts, making her a wonderful team member.

Without further delay, please meet Kelly Gengler!
Nicole: "Say "Hi," Kelly!"
