Wellness Connection of Maine is all about making people feel better. This company operates state-licensed medical cannabis dispensaries with a mission to provide qualified patients with the highest quality Maine-grown medical cannabis at a reasonable cost. The Wellness Connection works to provide excellent medicine, a full-spectrum of wellness services, and even ongoing education about the safe use of the medicinal plant.
Unsurprisingly, this job is incredibly fulfilling. Shares Ashlee Godin, Portland Dispensary Team Lead, “It’s incredibly rewarding to offer support and education to patients. Every day, I get to witness improvements that patients are making in their journey to a happier and healthier lifestyle, and I am proud to be a part of it.”
When they aren’t making patients’ lives better, the people here are finding other ways to give back to their community. The company’s quarterly volunteer program provides employees with the opportunity to spend time positively impacting areas they’re passionate about, such as animal shelters, food banks, and local non-profits.
Being able to spend their time improving the lives of so many people, whether through medicine or volunteering, has had a beneficial effect on team members. “I love my job—I’m respected and valued for who I am and what I do. My colleagues and staff are supportive and involved,” says David Theberge, Dispensary Operations Manager. “This place is the total package, and that is a rare find.”
