Budtender Q&A: Meet Melissa
The Greenery built a great relationship with our community over the last (almost) year – all thanks to our amazing budtenders. You know they are awesome at their jobs, but we thought you might want to know a little more. This month, we are featuring one of our first budtenders, Melissa:
Vendor & Community Relations Manager
Denver metro area – Arvada
When did you move to Durango & why?
I moved here in the Fall of 2004 to attend Fort Lewis College. After graduating in 2008 and doing the Durango-Tango, I found a job that allowed me to afford to live in Durango.
What do you do for fun (hobbies)?
The usual things Durangatangs do in their spare time:
Snowboarding, hiking, camping, SUP boarding, wakeboarding (when I can find friends with a boat), gardening, cooking, and finding excuses to dress up in costumes.
What is your favorite part of Durango?
My favorite part of Durango (physically) is the Lion’s Den looking over town with snow-capped peaks in the distance. Otherwise, I love the community and the laid-back lifestyle Durango has to offer.
What are your favorite cannabis strains?
I’m more of an Indica/Hybrid girl. Lately I have been enjoying Space Cream, Cheese and Grape Ape is always a good go-to.
What other ways you like to consume marijuana?
I like to eat an edible or two when I get off work.
I love the lollipops we carry, and lately have been putting infused sugar cubes into my tea or coffee.
What is the best part of your job?
There are two aspects that make my job so pleasant:
1) We have a little family here at The Greenery, so I get to work with friends and people I enjoy.
2) The majority of our customers are always in a good mood and if they’re not, we’re here to make their day better.
Anything else you’d like to share about yourself?
Um, random fact: To make extra money in college I did nude modeling for a sculpture class at Fort Lewis Art Department.
