Melissa Gibson
Hemp & Humanity

After 25+ years of business consulting with grassroots organizations and independent businesses, a personal battle with immune health inspired Melissa Gibson to dedicate her life to sharing the key to wellness that led her down the path to recovery. In 2016, leveraging her degree in Agriculture Economics from Cornell University and an MBA in Brand Management, Melissa founded Qple LLC, a quadruple-bottom line company that reconnects humans to hemp with a focus on People, Planet, Performance and Purpose. Under the brand name Hemp & Humanity, Melissa provides strategic consulting for craft hemp companies and educates the public about the power of hemp to improve the human condition. The cornerstone of her company is the Hemp & Humanity retail shop in Woodstock NY where Melissa works directly with the public, connecting locals and tourists to a “Consciously Curated Collection” of hemp goods while destigmatizing the plant. With a fresh and open view of life, Melissa identifies with what she has dubbed, “The Slash Economy” – she is an entrepreneur/mother/speaker/networker/community activist, and Senior Athlete, with a USA 50+ Snowboarding gold and silver medal, and 55+ NY State High Jumping Championship under her hemp belt.
