Jennifer Clarke is the General Manager of Distribution at Napa Valley Fumé, a vertically integrated cannabis company in Northern California.
Jennifer began her career in the financial sector with Suntrust Bank and Capital One out of her hometown of Richmond, VA. After several years in Credit and Consumer Services, she left the private sector to pursue a career in education. Jennifer spent over 10 years working with low socioeconomic school districts in Southern Florida to improve the quality of education and college access for students. Moving to California, she met several of Lake County’s cannabis farmers and knew she wanted to put her efforts into creating a sustainable cannabis culture locally.
Jennifer is Chair of the Education Committee for the Lake County Cannabis Alliance. In her first year with Fumé, Jennifer oversaw the expansion of the company’s grow, doubling their initial half-acre garden to three gardens with active grows in each. Jennifer has managed the cultivation team through two harvests, built out the trim and distribution teams, and oversees the company’s B2B cannabis channel. Jennifer is excited to be a part of a growing industry that is changing rapidly and looks forward to nationwide legalization.
