Project Mission Green with Amy Oppedisano
As the Co-Founder of the first publicly traded cannabis company in the U.S.A – Amy Oppedisano is most definitely #LivingFearlessly! This spitfire entrepreneur is also one of the most generous philanthropists, I know! A Not-To-Be-Missed Show on C-Suite Radio / C-Suite Network Host Page!! Amy currently serves as Creative Marketing and Branding Manager of Blüm and is a co-founder of Terra Tech Corp., the first publicly traded cannabis company in the US. Before she was on the ground floor of the legal cannabis revolution, Amy made her career in residential interior design and construction management. She first worked for several small firms before branching off on her own. As a real estate entrepreneur Amy has successfully flipped more than $8 million in residential real estate, making a name for herself in Southern California for breathing life into homes that were otherwise un-sellable. Her work has been published by several major blogs and been featured in Architectural Digest Germany. However, her focus, drive, and passion in the professional world for the last several years has been in cannabis, everything from brand development to retail identity and corporate ethos. Most recently, she successfully launched a discreet delivery service in Orange County. Amy served on the Board of Directors for Terra Tech Corp from 2012-2017 and is one of the first female founders of a publicly traded cannabis company. In 2018 Amy used her position in the marketing department at Blüm to focus on promotions that encouraged social responsibility, while giving back to the community. Amy has organized activations that collected supplies for victims of the wildfires in California, donated a portion of sales to commemorate the Las Vegas shooting victims, and passed out hundreds of pounds of meat at the holidays for local families in need. Under her leadership Blüm has also been an active participant in local Pride events, art shows, street fairs, and the Women’s March. She most recently has been instrumental in launching Project Mission Green with The Weldon Project, aiming to provide aid for those incarcerated for nonviolent cannabis offenses. As the wife of a medical cannabis patient, Amy is focused on the needs of the patient community, with a specific focus on education surrounding cannabis. Amy believes wholeheartedly in the regulated cannabis industry. She has witnessed the great lengths industry regulators have gone to protect the consumer, much in the same way organic certification has done for our food supply. Amy is very proud to be a part of an ethical industry that sells a transparent product the consumer can trust and wants to ensure her career path focuses on sharing that message while providing them a product that enhances their lives in a positive manner. This can be seen in her marketing directives with Blüm that focus on education, responsible cannabis use, and respectful visual representations of the cannabis consumer.
