Denise is a NYC-based attorney, licensing consultant, and Co-Founder & CEO of Mary’s List, a professional services marketplace for the cannabis community. Denise always believed in the incredible healing power of cannabis. After her fourth knee surgery, she opted to use cannabis for pain management rather than opioids. This decision changed her life. She decided to leave the courtroom and use her experience as a consultant for cannabis companies to create Mary’s List, allowing businesses to hire freelancers and other service professionals on a project-to-project basis. Mary’s List won the 2018 Boston University Cannabis Start-Up Competition and has been featured in multiple media outlets.
