JENNY BURKE | PLANT TECHNICIAN, CULTIVATION TEAM

What’s your favorite kind of food? 

I’d have to say my favorite meal is carne asada tacos topped with a lot of cilantro and guacamole. I appreciate the diversity of Mexican cuisine. There are so many types of dishes and the ingredient combinations are endless. I enjoy it all… except cow tongue and tripe. 😶 LOL! One of my favorite Mexican restaurants is Lalo’s Mexican Food in Ukiah, CA.

What was your first job?

My first job was right here in my hometown of Clearlake, CA, I worked at a dental office where I started as a reception assistant then worked my way up to dental assistant. I loved helping the patients. 

What’s your favorite book? Movie?

My favorite books are really any I get to read to my kids. I love fantasy movies. 🧝‍♀️🧚‍♂️🧞‍♂️

What’s on your bucket list?

My bucket list is simple. I want to travel to as many places as possible, starting with the Greek islands. I want to experience the Mediterranean’s warm waters and the rich history and beauty of Greek culture. 🛫🇬🇷😎

Red or black licorice? 

Red

A typical weekend for me is.

On the weekends, my family and I enjoy having fun outdoors, whether it’s going for a hike, checking out a new park, or just strolling around the neighborhood. 

If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why?

Definitely, Bettie Page! I admire what she stood for as an individual.

How do you relax after a hard day’s work?

My number one priority when I get home from work is hanging with my kids and having dinner as a family. Then once things have settled down and they have gone to bed, I treat myself to a blunt and a drink.

What is one thing people don’t know about you?

I am pretty open. I don’t keep much a secret.

What are you looking forward to in the coming months?

Work because I love what I do. Enjoying the beautiful weather of Northern California. Plus, lots of adventure and time spent in the water. 🛶⛵️🎣

What’s your preferred type of cannabis product?

Flower and Dabs. 

What’s your favorite strain? 

Bubba Kush.

Where do you see the cannabis industry in the next 5 years? 10 years?

I see the industry becoming a significant part of our economy throughout the U.S. and providing a lot more jobs.

Describe your typical day at fumé.

I have two areas that I focus on–the trim room and the garden. In the trim room, the crew and I are continually weighing buckets and packaging finished pounds to get them ready to sell. It’s very fast-paced. In the garden, we start nice and early as the sun is rising to try and beat the heat. We turn soil, plant, prune, hang trellis’ to support the plants, etc. Most days in the garden are determined by the needs of the plants at that current time.

What’s your favorite thing about working at fumé?

I love the family culture that the leadership team and the management team have created. Feel truly blessed to work at fumé.
