Cannabis Connect Insurance Services
A passionate advocate for cannabis awareness, Shauna Blackburn focuses on protecting businesses via risk management and assessment and aims to tailor insurance products to fill businesses’ specific needs. Because of her strong convictions regarding cannabis legalization, she has spent the past four years of her 20-year insurance career focusing her efforts on loss control for these businesses. Blackburn currently serves as the executive accounts director and risk manager at Cannabis Connect Insurance Services, working with the key cannabis insurers to compare and improve insurance contracts while simultaneously keeping pace with state and local regulatory requirements.
With significant knowledge of and experience in cannabis business structures, Blackburn is on a mission to protect and educate business owners by helping them to avoid litigation and mitigate financial loss due to unforeseen property damage. “I enjoy the daily validation of using my passion to protect other business owners by using my background to educate whenever possible,” she says. “This is my way of making sure the cannabis legalization and legitimization movement continues to grow and flourish.”
