Maine cannabis pioneer embarking on new career path
A marijuana industry pioneer is leaving her post at New England’s most prominent dispensary to pursue new opportunities in her home state of Maine and nationally.
A former Catholic high school teacher, Becky DeKeuster co-founded the Wellness Connection of Maine and helped the dispensary obtain four of eight medical licenses available in the state in 2010.
She developed a high profile in Maine and nationally for her efforts to educate patients and the public, including setting up a program to serve patients in hospice care. She most recently served as education and patient liaison at the Wellness Connection.
