Senior Account Executive
Laila joined the Stones’ Phones team in July of 2014. Since then, she has headed up our criminal justice, LGBTQ, and Michigan reform work.
Inspired by Stones’ Phones work in 2014 on Initiative 71 in DC, in May of 2015 Laila started a DC chapter of Women Grow– a women’s business cannabis networking organization dedicating to empowering an intersectional group of women to start businesses and take on management positions in the cannabis movement.
In 2016, Laila was a part of the first ever National Cannabis Festival as the Advocacy and Federal Relations Outreach Chair where she rallied 18 drug policy, DC Statehood and harm reduction organizations, 2 US Congress people, and local DC Councilmembers to participate in the 5,000-person festival.
Laila also does contract work in event planning with c3 Presents, where she has participated in and organized panels and exhibitors for Michelle Obama's United State of Women Summit and the White House's first annual SXSL.
When Laila is not in the office or empowering women entrepreneurs, you can find her tending to her garden, contemplating life's biggest questions, and preforming witchcraft with essential oils.
