With over twenty five years of experience in the natural foods industry and in alternative medicine, Mary Olivar has devoted her professional career to being a passionate advocate of health. Her broad scope of experience in food, nutrition, and herbal medicines has given her a keen sense of emerging trends with particular insight into demographic preferences and buying patterns. This insight has also given Mary the ability to evaluate brand and product strength and viability in emerging markets. After a career focused on promoting health and wellness, Mary has spent the last four years an advisor and consultant for the legal cannabis industry, and as an advocate and educator in Texas where she is based. This year, Mary is launching a real-estate fund that is focused on the legal cannabis industry nationally.
