TOPIC:Lessons from the Trenches: Audit adventures and surprise visits from Health Canada.
Nancy-Anne Rose works in Quality Assurance for BOAZ Pharmaceuticals, an Alberta-based, privately-owned, medical cannabis producer.
After earning her Master of Biology from University of Northern BC in 2009, Nancy-Anne worked in a variety of natural resource industries before the cannabis industry knocked on her door. Initially hired to work in production at Aurora Cannabis, Nancy-Anne quickly transitioned to the Quality Assurance team where she could apply her knowledge of scientific process and writing to the development of standard operating procedures (SOPs), verification of product inventory, and preparation for Health Canada audits.
Nancy-Anne believes in cannabis’ healing properties, and that is what inspires her to continue working in the industry. She is also the Liaison Manager for Canexions Calgary, a networking group for the local cannabis community, where she enjoys engaging with and educating people about the therapeutic value of cannabis.
