Julia Jerome, Production Manager

Julia was hired as the first employee of The Healing Rose team in April 2018 and is now the Production Manager, spending her days in the lab making products. She spent the majority of her life in the Hudson Valley, New York. While attending college, Julia developed severe digestive issues. For a couple of years she went undiagnosed, trying many medications that provided nothing but side effects. During this difficult time she turned to cannabis to treat her symptoms, where she felt the impact of the stigma due to living in New York. Around the time she was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, an Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), she moved in with a friend in Connecticut and began researching how people were using cannabis and hemp to treat IBD. Shortly after she became a CT medical patient. Julia was obsessed with learning everything she could about this plant, taking many classes and attending events. While she gained a better understanding on what to look for in strains, she became frustrated with the CT pharmaceutical model, often feeling like she knew more than the people helping her at the dispensary. She decided that she needed to be a part of the New England Cannabis Industry to ensure that people had access to the education needed to determine the best way to use cannabis and hemp in their lives. She is grateful to be a part of such an accepting community and loves providing education and products that help make a difference in people’s lives. In her free time, Julia is just as passionate about the outdoors as she is about cannabis and hemp, and is happiest exploring trails.

Caitlin is the heart and mind behind Soil and Spirit, an independent consultancy focusing on collaborating and creating with small businesses in the natural products industry and cannabis and psychedelic communities. When Caitlin isn’t thinking outside of the box with her client, she’s orchestrating quite the cacophony in the kitchen with her weapon of choice: the S-Blade or browsing through her many books in her home resource library. Caitlin is thrilled to be aligned with The Healing Rose – this was the first CBD topical care brand that she sought out, vetted and got placement for on retail shelves during her time as a body care buyer in the natural products industry.

Sara Diaz, Production Leader

Joining us in February 2019, Sara Diaz started as a production assistant in our Andover location, and has since taken on the role of Production Lead in Newburyport. Past work in the high-paced restaurant industry has proven to be an efficient background for keeping up with our steady production schedule in the lab. Bringing over 7 years of event and promotional work experience to the team has been helpful this summer as we have participated in many exciting events around New England.  Growing up in central NH with a culturally diverse family, Sara has had the opportunity to experience world travel & is grateful for the perspective that has given her in appreciating cultural diversity. Sara will always jump on an opportunity to practice her Spanish at events where we get to talk to customers who’s first language is Spanish. 

The Healing Rose has been a great fit for Sara, who in early 2018 began her pursuit of a professional career with a company that mirrors her values of conscious consumption, focuses on team work, and positive drive with efficient communication and lots of fun and hard work (you know…the dream….).  As the steady evolution of the cannabis industry had been blossoming in the Northeast, through 2018, she recognized The Healing Rose at multiple events and read some amazing articles about the work Laura and Zach had been doing, the high quality product they were producing and the adorable dog that inspired the company name! She is grateful to be on the team and is excited to continue learning more about CBD, plant medicine and the power of hemp/ cannabis and other plants and herbs that offer a better quality of life and keep our minds and bodies in touch with nature, and focused on personal well-being for the benefit of ourselves and in turn those around us.
