After 20 years of working in Internet design, 10 years doing feminist events and meet-ups for bisexual and lesbian women and losing both parents to cancer, Lisa Snyder felt inspired to channel her life’s work into combining her passions for cannabis and women’s empowerment.
After several creative cannabis consumption dinners and vision-boarding experiences with her wife and friends, Snyder felt called to do a cannabis consumption-friendly meet-up geared for women. She went to a networking event when she met Samantha Montanaro, who shared her passion for cannabis events. After sitting on this idea for a year, Snyder pitched her idea for a cannabis meet-up geared for women to Montanaro, who had already been curating something similar, smaller gatherings along those lines.
Lisa Snyder is the Co-Founder & Chief Innovation Officer of Tokeativity, The Global Feminist Community for Active Cannabis Culture.
