While living in Pomona, CA she reluctantly took the leap into the Cannabis industry and learned the true benefits of the entire cannabis plant. After returning to Phoenix she joined the Women’s Grow team and became one of the founders of “Speed Hiring for Canna Jobs”, which addressed the community's need for employment and education. Her mentoring and management qualities took her to the Women’s Grow National Chapter.

While doing all of the above she assisted in the opening of the first dispensary in the U.S. with a medicinal drive-thru for the patients with mobility limitations. Kenya then went on to start Kenyaprise Marketing & Management Group who launched B.W.I.C. in 2019 with a passion to educate and assist her community with the correct footprint to build successful businesses.

Christian Armstrong

Christian Armstrong is an Arizona native. A teenager in the 90s she could recall always being told Cannabis would never be legal. It was not accepted in her family's home nor in society. She knew at a young age she would forever use Cannabis as a way of medicating. This was the medicine that helped her with life and with her anxiety. Giving comfort in coping, and enhancing the happy and hopeful times. For this reason she is now actively working within the Cannabis industry today. As an executive coordinator for "420 Ultimate Tours" Christian hosts the smoke louge, orchestrates and assists in several events . Being from Phoenix, Christian's goal is to enrich communities in Cannabis throughout the valley.
