Emily Branch is the Founder & CEO of The Green Clinics, based in Kansas City’s historic River Market district, which launched February 2018. The Green Clinics’ primary mission is to educate the public about how to obtain a medical card, to educate patients about cannabis as a treatment option, and to offer patients with independent experienced physicians to evaluate them to see if they meet the state requirements for certification.
Since the launch of the Kansas City office of The Green Clinics, the company has expanded with physical locations in St. Joseph, Butler, Versailles, St. Louis, Poplar Bluff, and Trenton. The Green Clinics recently launched Telehealth (video chat with a cannabis doctor) to serve patients who are home bound or would rather not drive to a physical location.
Ms. Branch attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City, earning a B.A. in Political Science, and began her career in the legal field as a paralegal specializing in litigation.
In 2013, she founded Legal Staffing Solutions, LLC where she assisted law firms hire quality talent and sourced law firm merger opportunities. Her recruiting firm is now managed by a colleague.
Ms. Branch is member of NORML, The Badass Women Entrepreneurs of Kansas City, and the Canna Convict Project. She is a supporter of the Midwest Innocence Project. She is politically active in municipal, state, and national politics. Ms. Branch resides in Kansas City with her family.
