Jake moved to Colorado ten years ago from Berkshire County, Massachusetts and received his Bachelors degree in Environmental Studies from the University of Northern Colorado. He then continued his education by attaining a Master's degree in Environmental Management with an emphasis in Sustainable and Resilient Communities from Western State Colorado University.
After working for years as a sustainability and climate expert advising cities, states, and private corporations, Jake saw the need for addressing environmental issues in the cannabis sector. Utilizing years of experience working with both cannabis and the environment, Jake is combining his expertise to help create a more sustainable and resilient cannabis industry. He created Sustainabis in 2017 to advise and consult on holistic environmental issues in the cannabis space and its related sectors.
