Speaker:
Molly Lotz is currently a school counselor at Yampa Valley High School in Steamboat Springs, Col. After her students began asking for support in their attempts to become less dependent on marijuana, Lotz created a curriculum to help youth do just that. In 2015, she and her team created the Marijuana Education Initiative out of a passion for providing unbiased information to youth who want to know and understand the effects marijuana has on their lives.Lotz has a BA in English, with a secondary teaching certificate from Colorado State University, and a master’s in social work from the University of Washington, with an emphasis in school social work.
