BEC KOOP

Bec's career in cannabis began with her job at a medical dispensary while she also ran a delivery-based floral business. This sparked a big idea: Cannabis Weddings. With a tenacious attitude and a saint-like amount of lot of grace, Bec established Colorado's first cannabis wedding specialist company along with the Cannabis Wedding Expo. Little did she know that in 5 short years she'd be running a national cannabis bartending company.

CHELSI KATZ

Chelsi's passion for cannabis advocacy started in Florida where she worked in the political and non-profit worlds to put medical cannabis on the 2014 ballot. She then moved to Colorado to expand her portfolio in the legal cannabis sector. Chelsi has over a decade of experience in the cannabis, marketing, event and entertainment industries. Her business ventures go beyond her work with Irie to include her own lifestyle brand and collaborative side projects.
