Meet Darnell (Dee) Williams! Dee started his Trulieve journey as a Patient Consultant in 2017 at our Orlando location. Dee now is a Community Events Coordinator and helps plan and execute educational cannabis events statewide. You may even recognize Dee's contagious smile from our TruTalk Facebook Live episodes! When COVID-19 hit, events across Florida were canceled, and Dee stepped up to co-host virtual events and continues to share his extensive cannabis knowledge online.
Dee says his favorite thing about working at Trulieve is our commitment to diversity. "Everyone here shares a common passion for this plant and no matter who they are and where they come from it ties us all together," he says.
Five years ago, Dee was the recipient of a donor's heart via a transplant. While the procedure saved his life, but it also came with a slew of different side effects that drastically changed the way he had to live. A Tru Truliever for sure, Dee has been using Medical Cannabis to help. "Once I was able to adapt cannabis medicine into my regimen I was able to get a little bit closer to who I used to be. A better father, husband, co-worker, and friend," says Dee.
Having spent several years as a chef at the Canadian Pavillion in Epcot, his favorite Trulieve product is our binske Tinctures. "Being able to infuse my cannabis medicine into my meals is the key to my regimen. It keeps me at a 'low and slow’ level that allows me to feel like I am supposed to feel," he adds.
We are lucky to have Darnell on our team! Thanks for being a Truliever Dee!
