Mariah Chere

Operations & Marketing Assistant

Growing up in colorful Colorado, Mariah saw significant changes in MMJ history all around her. The biggest one was her legal right to get the medicine she needed for her abiding pains from her Lyme Disease. As doctors insisted on giving her pain medication, she persisted getting a healthier and effective alternative so she can live a normal life.

With a background in modeling and acting, Mariah has always had a fire in her heart for entrepreneurship and being a voice in the community. She not only wanted to build a legacy for her family, but also for her community and for the very industry that had saved her. Through past experiences with Kevin, Mariah was led to more research, knowledge, and awareness of the industry and has developed a passion for giving back through the industry that gave her her life back.

Kevin J White


Kevin began a journey into social entrepreneurship after a 20 plus year career in the nonprofit sector. Having started his career as a direct care counselor for at-risk children he advanced through the sector, eventually moving to Colorado for a job with a major animal charity overseeing a $4MM budget, 40 employees and 120 volunteers, to creating his own nonprofit 501c3 public charity. While determining whether his charity should accept support from the cannabis industry, he realized that there were some challenges on both sides and CannaMakeADifference was born!
