Since 2011, Stef has been leading advertising sales teams toward success at a major national advertising agency in NYC, at the Journal Record Publishing Company in Oklahoma, as well as head of Digital Advertising Sales at the Oklahoman before founding GCA. Stef says, "I have personally seen how cannabis as medicine can help so many people of all ages...Green Cloud Agency wants to help those cannabis businesses that really have a medicinal focus stand out above the rest! I launched Green Cloud because so many marketing and advertising firms gouge small businesses on marketing and advertising and it just shouldn't be like that. We want our clients to succeed and see an ROI from advertising. It shouldn't cost them an arm and and leg to do so!"
