Our Founder + CEO: 
From an early age, Linsey has been fascinated by powerful stories that invoke change and inspire. That initial fascination grew into her life mission: to become the megaphone for untold stories and propel them forward to make waves of social change.

Fluent in stoner culture, activism, and all things quirky, Linsey began her career in 2006 working for an environmental nonprofit. After spending nearly a decade in the progressive political world, Linsey moved to Los Angeles and began working with Brave New Films, a progressive film studio producing impactful documentaries. During this time, Linsey built relationships with top media influencers at the Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, the New York Times, among others. She created solid relationships with numerous indie media giants and digital outlets. It’s during this time that Linsey became outspoken on the War on Drugs, and its impact on our communities.

In 2015, Linsey founded Refined Bud, a digital marketing agency specializing in the cannabis space. Refined Bud is dedicated to advancing conscience brands and companies who share a similar vision.Industry players like Women Grow, Vaporbrothers, Civilized, and Weedmaps have turned to Refined Bud to establish, expand, and diversify their digital presence.

When she’s not working hard, Linsey can usually be found in the mountains with her wife and 3 adopted dogs, exploring off the beaten path places in Los Angeles, or cheering on her favorite sports teams; the Los Angeles Sparks, Dodgers, and The Ohio State Buckeyes.
