Chris, along with her business partner, Adina Birnbaum, were awarded a medical marijuana dispensary license by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on June 28th 2017 with the highest score in the Southeast region and the 2nd highest score in the Commonwealth.
Prior to applying for a license, Chris was a retail merchant for more than 20 years working for large national retailers. In 2005, she left retail and received a government contract to manufacture goods for a branch of The Department of Justice, UNICOR.

Additionally, Chris has deep community roots. With her pro-bono work for local businesses being pushed out of their neighborhood by large corporations, she was successful in securing funds from the state, the large corporate business and attracted a local contractor to move the 14 businesses into a new home, saving the businesses and many local jobs.
Chris’ experience in business development, customer service, community involvement and branding is why TerraVida Holistic Centers is the best known medical marijuana brand in Pennsylvania with the highest grossing stores and the reputation for being the most compassionate dispensaries in the Commonwealth.
