Featured Instructor of the Month: Yvonne Westbrook-White

Yvonne headshot cropWhat do you teach at Oaksterdam University?
I teach the Cannabis Patient Meet And Greet.

How long have you been with OU?
I have been with OU since 2007.

How you got involved in the industry?
I started out as an advocate in the 1990’s at Dennis Peron’s cannabis club.

Favorite part about Oaksterdam?
I love speaking to the students. When I explain about the need and necessity for compassion for patients, I see the light bulb turning on in the students’ heads. That is when I know that they understand my message and that makes me feel good.

Expert tip for our readers?
Be compassionate when dealing with patients. Adult use or recreational cannabis is completely different and I want everyone to understand a patient’s needs.

Anything else you’d like to share with our readers?
My main focus in life is to help people understand the benefits of cannabis for MS patients and patients with other illnesses.
