Kate Phillips, Founder of Silk, a Cannabis Consulting Agency that specializes in Cannabis Education, Executive Training, Management Consulting, & Strategic planning. Through her experiences working with fast paced start-ups, high compliance environments, and poorly informed cannabis industry staff and patients, Kate has developed a unique perspective and skill set that she brings to cannabis industry consulting. She bases her philosophy of Elevated Education on working to create accessible, research based educational materials about cannabis for both companies and patients. As Silk’s Founder and Owner, Kate personally develops innovative educational marketing materials, educational programs for staff training, and curated patient experiences to help differentiate brands in this emerging market. Today she continues to spread her passion of cannabis education through writing, consulting, speaking, and teaching.
