Bridget Hennessey

Vice President of Government Relations

Bridget has over 15 years of concentrated experience working on government relations, communications, strategy development, campaign management, and public relations at all levels of government. She leads the company’s policy work, partnering with medical cannabis and veterans’ groups, legislators, and community groups to ensure safe, legal access to cannabis. Bridget’s passion for advocacy stems from a long history in the non-profit sector – working directly with incarcerated individuals and seeing how minority communities were disproportionately impacted by the War on Drugs. Outside of work, Bridget describes herself as a political junkie and soccer mom.
