Anya Gordon’s entry into the cannabis industry has been somewhat unconventional given that she spent the bulk of her professional life in health care working to bring alternative care methodologies into traditional care practices and policies. Consistent with her non-traditional entrance, Anya brings a fresh, forward-looking point of view to the industry. Since joining her husband and helping to build GroTec from the ground up she has been focused on bringing state policy and industry standards up to speed with this rapidly growing new sector. That steep growth trajectory resulted in Anya’s ascension to her position as company CEO. She has since worked with a multitude of state agencies and energy efficiency groups to help write code and create facility design baselines that work towards adopting sustainable practices and elevating the industrial agriculture industry to one with a green platform. GroTec has consulted of facility design across the country and continues to explore research and partnerships that will push the envelope. Anya's background has taken a wide swath but her interests have always been rooted in public policy and social change. She has made it her life's work to be the bridge between the status quo creating and new opportunities…a mission that aligns well with the multitude of possibilities offered by the cannabis industry. Anya and Ian live in Corbett, OR with their two children and many animals.
