At Get Me Some Green we are built from people who believe in natural healing because they have experienced it first-hand. Our team cares about people and wants to share their knowledge and experiences to others to grow.
First and foremost, let's introduce the creators and heart behind the whole operation, Heather & Eric Wiskes. Get Me Some Green is their baby and a long time in the making. For many years, Get Me Some Green was just an idea that was slowly growing and taking form. It took many years for all the pieces to come together but with perseverance and a lot of blood, sweat and tears everything began to coalesce. For the last three years they have been full steam ahead opening a physical location, expanding to a larger location as well as expanding their team that they now call family.
Born to a single mom, Heather knows a thing or two about going without, like being resourceful and finding natural ways to heal. This foundation along with her heritage gave way to her desire to find better ways to help people manage money, health, healing and personal growth. For years she used this drive while working in the IT, Accounting and even Legal arenas. Once a mother herself she found the need for more people to understand how money works and how cost effective and necessary natural healing can be. After spending years rallying for natural medicine and better use for the Hemp plant and cannabis across many industries; when her son was born with special needs it was time to shift gears leaving behind her professional career to pave the way in the cannabis and natural healing industries. Coming from a single parent household money was always tight which means choices about proper healthcare had to be made. Heathers now on a mission to provide wellness solutions to everyone and educate people on natural healthcare options both in the cannabis arena and beyond.
Eric is the creative driving force behind everything that makes Get Me Some Green what it is. This Chicagoan has an extensive creative director background and Bachelors in computer graphics focusing on online and email marketing from sunny Arizona State University. His passion for hemp and alternative medicine lead him to further his education by studying the chiropractic arts at National University. The knowledge he gained led him to his dream job working remotely for Exact Target/Salesforce managing email marketing programs for Fortune 500 companies. With seasonal affective disorder and working remotely, Eric again strived for better weather, so over 6 years ago moved his family to Charlotte, North Carolina. Where his meditation and spiritual practices escalated with the presence of mountains, sun, greenery, and his ultimate desire the beach and ocean. So in 2017, he put all these elements together creating the foundation for what Get Me Some Green is all about. Being an avid athlete and sports fanatic, Eric uses hemp derived CBD products for his pain and inflammation from old knee and low back sports injuries that ended his football kicking career. With all the stressors of life his anxiety and depression grew along with his fight against his struggles with addiction. These issues affect millions of people worldwide, taking Hemp and CBD has changed his life in a more natural way of healing these issues without the need for pharmaceuticals. Eric is ecstatic about the future of the hemp, CBD, and medical marijuana industries, and is proud to have GetMeSomeGreen lead the way to its ultimate success!

Dani is Get Me Some Green's very own unicorn. The company's only Charlotte native, she's watched the city grow and GMSG grow with it. With her Bachelors in Fine Art from Western Carolina University, she is instrumental in helping to ensure all social media and creative aspects are completed with Get Me Some Green flair. She also helps out wherever she can as Heather's right hand and assists on many back-end operations. Get Me Some Green would truly be lost without her.

She's excited to see what the future holds for Get Me Some Green and the cannabis industry as a whole. As a sufferer of Crohn’s, where her own immune system is mis-identifying her digestive tract as a foreign body, she’s all too aware of the powerful benefits of cannabis. Dani is a wonderful advocate for the healing powers and anti-inflammatory properties of this humble and misunderstood plant as well as the many natural healing methods that Get Me Some Green has to offer. She has quickly grown to love the PEMF mat for her Crohn's as well. She is excited to be a part of the Get Me Some Green team in our mission to educate the masses about plant medicine and natural wellness and to share her own experiences with the plant to help demystify its healing capabilities.
