Post Career Highlights

I grew up in a small country town in northern NJ. My twin sister and I started snow skiing at 3 and swimming at 6 years of age.Competitive swimming took up most of my time, but softball, skiing, football and any other sport would suffice. I swam for Cal under Moe Thornton and then found Rugby. I was President of my sorority and Rugby club.Voted into Leadership by the Chancellor. I played rugby for 12 years with multiple MVP tournaments. Two most memorable sports moments : winning Rugby Nationals for the first time (in my 10th year) and playing in Japan's venerable Hanazano Rugby Stadium. We were the first women to ever play there - it was 1996.
When I settled in Lafayette, CA, I coached my kids’ soccer, baseball and football teams and still play soccer today. Our family has always used eastern medicine practices to stay healthy, even though I sold western medicine. I was a consultant to surgeons in the OR. My focus was spine surgery, orthopedics, osteoporosis and oncology. In 2011 I started my own Pain Management Distributorship and in 2015, found cannabis. I started Green Alley to offer my community safe CBD Hemp products. I integrate other holistic supplements and practices to jumpstart this Endocannabinoid System that absorbs and actually produces CBD. I give talks on how we can boost our Immune System, increase our athletic performance and recovery, and even offset injury by feeding the Endocannabinoid System CBD, Omega 3s and more. It is an honor for me to serve my community in this unique way and to shed light on ancient ways of healing.

The Week In Cannabis: GrowGeneration’s Spike, Big Earnings, Stocks In Decline, And Dutchie’s Funding
GRWG) managed to close in the green, with gains of 24%. This still meant giving up some of the gains accrued between Aug. 12 and Aug. 19.

The rally started last Friday when the grow supplies company reported its second-quarter financial results, establishing a new revenue record for the tenth consecutive quarter.

GrowGeneration continued to spike on Monday after Jim Cramer interviewed CEO Darren Lampert on CNBC, describing its business model as the “most exciting” he’s seen in retail.

Following a five-day rally, GrowGeneration’s stock hit a peak of $22.30 on Wednesday, and commenced a small decline as excitement around its earnings wore off and some investors looked to take profits. On Friday, shares took a dive of more than 9% after Hindenburg Research published a report arguing the “Euphoric Retail Stock Has The Brightest Management Red Flags” that analysts have “ever seen,” saying downside surpasses 70%.

With CFL season scuttled, Bergman enjoys 'just being a dad'
With CFL season scuttled, Bergman enjoys 'just being a dad'
The silver lining for Norfolk County native Shane Bergman in COVID-19 upsetting plans for the 2020 Canadian Football League season is the extra time he got to spend with his nine-month-old son, Asher.

The season, originally scheduled to begin in June, was officially cancelled this week.

The CFL had asked the federal government for a $30-million interest-free loan with the intention of creating a hub city (Winnipeg) to host games with no spectators. But the loan was turned down and the CFL put the brakes on plans for a six-game regular season, followed by playoffs and a Grey Cup.

“I had no idea what was going on with those talks between the CFL and the federal government,” said the offensive lineman for the Calgary Stampeders. “I didn’t know about the final decision but I thought it was going (to be cancelled) just because it took so long. It was inevitable.”
