Hailee is the CMC Associate Director of MAPS PBC. She is responsible for CMC logistics functions, cross-functional projects, and assists in supply-chain oversight.
Hailee previously worked in the expanding hemp and cannabis industries, where she designed extraction processes and managed testing laboratories and manufacturing teams. She worked in one of the first hemp-refining companies to follow current US and EU federal regulations of pharmaceuticals, which at the time was an unconventional aspiration for the nascent industry. In her prior company, Hailee was the Chief Operating Officer of a pharmaceutical-grade CBD manufacturer.
Hailee earned a Masters in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, both from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. During her graduate work, she studied fungal-plant symbioses and co-authored a project seeking to unravel the evolution of hallucinogenic compounds found in psychotropic fungi.
In her free time, Hailee loves to be outdoors. Some of her favorite activities are hiking, kayaking, and appreciating nature to decompress. Hailee also enjoys spending time with her partner, traveling, reading, and occasionally indulging in her guilty pleasure of cartoons.
