Jess Dugan followed her heart from suburban Philadelphia to Oakland, CA as a festival journalist for her then blog, Sparkleberry Lane. She wrote her way across the country's prime transformational festivals interviewing artists like Random Rab, Phutureprimitive and Shpongle along the way. When she arrived to California she landed a once in a lifetime opportunity as the first employee at the first ever cannabis investment firm -- the ArcView Group. Jessica stayed lovingly with the firm for nearly three years and was honored as "the heart of the company" upon her departure in 2015. Facing burn out, she left to take time to recover from the relentless stress she had to deal with while building out a new company in a birthing industry -- the fastest growing industry in America at the time. Her departure came in conjunction with her developing passion for the mind/body connection. The deeper she got into her practice, the more she realized that her "dream job" wasn't serving her personal well-being. After taking a full year off of a corporate schedule she found her niche in event production and yoga. Jess is committed to wellness in the workplace and advocates for employee health and well-being in the cannabis space. She is a 200 RYT with the Yoga Alliance with continuing teacher credits in Adaptive Yoga. She facilitates private retreats for ganjapreneurs that focus on personal growth for professional development and will launch Ganja Yoga Oakland in partnership with founder Dee Dussault this September. She is committed to undoing the impact of marijuana prohibition on the subconscious mind and is currently planning a festival that will leverage cannabis education to the world outside of the sector.
