I finally found relief from my nerve pain! Colleen is the best!
Colleen knew exactly what I needed for all of my issues.
I felt as if a huge weight was lifted from my chest within 5 minutes of talking with her.
Life got SO much better now that I am able to get a full night's sleep!
I was able to stop taking my Vicodin within just one week! I couldn't believe it!
Colleen is a pharmacist, author, and speaker who helps translate the complex world of pharmaceutical and cannabis medicine into an accessible language for patients and caregivers.
Colleen has been helping patients understand how to get the most out of their medications for almost thirty years, first in various retail pharmacies, and most recently as a cannabis pharmacist in the medical marijuana program in Connecticut.
While working with new patients, she immediately identified a need for professionally trained drug experts to bridge the gap between patients and the effective use of medical-grade cannabis products.
Clear instructions are crucial. If a patient does not understand how to properly use their medicine, any medicine, they won't continue to use it and you've lost that
In March of 2020, Colleen published her first book, The Cannabis Prescription: How to Use Medical Marijuana to Reduce or Replace Pharmaceutical Medications.
She created SwayInnovations.com, an educational website designed to translate cannabis science, in order to make it more accessible for both patients and healthcare professionals.
Colleen speaks to healthcare professionals, trains dispensary staff and educates patients groups on how the medical benefits of cannabis can be applied to specific symptoms in order to achieve a comfortable and successful outcome.
Colleen is certified in Diabetes Management, Medication Therapy Management and as a Pain Management Specialty Pharmacist.
Colleen spends as much of her free time as possible on the beach in Milford, Connecticut while playing active mother to her daughter and crazy rescue dog.
She participates in her favorite triathlon, the New York City Olympic distance triathlon, every year (nine times and counting) and looks forward to it every July.
She was part of a team that completed the Swim Across the Sound which raises money for any and all expenses accrued for patients during their cancer treatment.
She is a New York City Marathon finisher and will never do that again.
She completed the Timberman Half Ironman triathlon in New Hampshire and would love to do that again.
My migraines went from 2 a week to 2 a month. Thank you, Colleen!
