Seattle Hempfest General Manager Sharon Whitson

Sharon Whitson, General Manager & Treasurer of Seattle Hempfest, joined the organization in 2004. She loves saying that a soccer PTSA mom runs Hempfest as family is a huge focus in her life. Sharon quickly found that her project & business management background could be leveraged to help Hempfest evolve.In 2012 she founded Hempfest Central, the organization’s first offices fronted by a hemp boutique/420 culture store. When she’s not at Hempfest Central leading the charge towards our 25th anniversary she’s loves camping, hiking, & spending time on the river with her family.
