Jenny Germano began working in the Colorado Cannabis Industry in 2009 after she transitioned over from working in commercial kitchens for 23 years in the restaurant industry.
She worked her way from the ground floor through every employee and management position in medical dispensaries to the level of director of operations of a multi-million dollar recreational dispensary and cultivation operation in 2014.
Jenny is a long-time industry vet, witnessing the industry in Colorado going from an unregulated wild west in 2009 to the strictly regulated market of 2022. This experience has taught her the importance of implementing, understanding regulation and protocol.

In January 2020 Jennifer joined the Science and Policy Workgroup and was nominated as Co-Chair of the Sampling Subcommittee in October of 2020. Jenny drafted Marijuana Regulations for 2021 rule implementation, developing an employee training program for Manufacturers and Cultivation licensed operators in preparing and collecting Test Batch Samples prior to testing at a Laboratory.
