How and when did your Provisioning Center start up?
I helped start the Jackson County Compassion Club with my dad in March of 2009. We were the second compassion club to open in the state. After that, [we] closed down in September 2017, and I started working towards opening one in Leoni Twp called JC3. JC3 opened its doors Dec.14, 2017.
What’s the story behind the name of your Provisioning Center?
JC3 has always been the acronym for Jackson County Compassion Club. I wanted to name it that for my Dad since he got out of the business.

How has the cannabis industry changed since you have been in the business? Where would you like to see it go?
The cannabis industry has changed exponentially since 2009, from the MMMA and fighting for safe access for patients’ rights to legalization! The MMJ future in Michigan is going to create jobs, safe access, and criminal law reform.
What are the biggest challenges you face in this industry as a Provisioning Center? . . . Biggest joys?
Definitely hardest challenge right now is getting fully licensed. Biggest joy is our patients! JC3 has an excellent cancer program with fantastic employees. Our JC3 Family is the best in the industry.
What is the one thing you want patients/customers to know about your Provisioning Center?
We truly care about our patients. Everyone that works at JC3 does so because they want to help educate people in creating a healthy alternative way to pain relief. Our focus is on education and patient’s health.
If someone wanted to open a provisioning center and get their feet wet in the industry, what advice or counsel would you give them?
Research. Go to the meet and greets in the cannabis community and talk with people. Only go into business with people you can truly trust. Know the law and abide by it.
What do you hope to accomplish in the cannabis industry?
I hope to succeed in providing the best quality medicine and safe access to patients in Michigan. I want my employees to have a place where they can call it a career and not just a job and for them to feel accomplished as well.
