Chanel White: Director of Client Relations at WikiLeaf talks resilience in the face of an incurable diagnosis, how cannabis gave her quality of life and her mission to erase the stigma around cannabis
This week I'm talking to Chanel White, Director of Client Relations at WikiLeaf. Chanel focuses on generating positive communication and company preference through proficient, knowledgeable interactions. She is also a seasoned content developer with mediums ranging from non-profits organizations, to popular news outlets such as The Huffington Post. With a background in early education, medicinal cannabis consultation, and motivational speaking, Chanel fosters comprehensive education and meaningful conversation in all she does.
In this episode, Chanel shares her story of being diagnosed at age 20 with an incurable rare and super aggressive autoimmune and connective tissue disease, Systemic Sclerosis. We chat about her brave journey through extremely harsh medical treatments and undergoing a risky human clinical trial, her choice to publicly share every bit of her reality on video to inspire others also adjusting to a new normal, how cannabis provided her with quality of life (and eventually new career), and her tireless mission to erase the heavy stigma surrounding cannabis and bring recognition to its incredible medicinal properties.
