Kathryn Rust

Assistant Manager

Kathryn Rust serves as the Assistant Manager in charge of executing operational initiatives at Metropolitan Wellness Center, including the support of MWC's members. Kathryn brings a valuable skill set due to her additional role as Manager at District Growers Medicinal Cannabis Cultivation Center in Washington D.C. Her exposure to both the cultivation practices and the dispensary operations allows her to speak fluently about the cannabis that will be made available to MWC's members. Since 2004, Kathryn has dedicated herself personally and professionally to the medical cannabis industry, working as both a Member Specialist and a Cultivation Consultant in dispensaries in southern California.

Kathryn graduated from San Diego State University with a BA in Biology. She then went on to graduate from Mueller Holistic College as a certified Holistic Health Practitioner. She has earned her certificate of completion in the D.C. Medical Marijuana Training Program facilitated by Americans for Safe Access. Her desire to be a part of the emerging industry in D.C., and her passion for serving medical marijuana patients, led her to move here from southern California.
