Lindsey Pate, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Glass House Grown, studied biology at Sonoma State University and was recognized for many contributions as a student leader. Lindsey was awarded a National Science Foundation grant during her undergrad program to study invertebrate endocrinology at the University of Southeast Alaska. After graduating, Lindsey followed her passions as an Outdoor Leader with a focus on at-risk youth in the back country. Since making the transition to cannabis, she has become an active voice in the Oregon cannabis community: meeting with county planners, speaking at legislative public hearings to address the needs of cannabis producers and processors, and participating on the Marijuana Advisory Committee for Deschutes County.
I'm one of 3 owners of Magic Number. I work at Magic Number part-time and do a little bit of everything for the business.
I have been married to the most beautiful and supportive woman I could have ever dreamed of for 30 years. We have two daughters and two grandsons. I have worked in the medical imaging service field for the last 25 years prior to starting my businesses. I have continuously moved up in my career and life's ambitions throughout my life starting out in a very poor family in WV. I have had a strong moral compass and felt socially responsible all my life which has finally driven me to run for office which has given me the opportunity to be the new city councilor for the City of La Pine Oregon.
