I have been with Sunny Skies CBD since mid-August of 2020. When my sister Terri invited me to be part of the lab team, I was hesitant. I lived in Rhinelander Wisconsin, with my husband and my two adult daughters nearby. It was a life changing decision to uproot our lives as we knew it for the unknown. I’m thankful we took that leap. Prior to starting at Sunny Skies, I visited the store for a while getting to know everyone. The atmosphere and the staff were so welcoming I knew I would fit in.
Alicia enjoys being her children’s chauffer, caregiver, and is an expert at ordering lunches for the Sunny Skies CBD staff!
