High Q is operates four High Q retail marijuana stores on the Western Slope in Silt, Parachute, Carbondale and Snowmass Village.  We have the only stores in the Valley that sell only soil-grown, organically-fed marijuana grown without any chemical nutrients or chemical pesticides.  Others may claim they are organic but ask them about how their plants are cultivated and if its anything other than living soil and fed the way nature intended, that's not our definition of organic.

John Hornblower
VR Business Brokers
Managing Broker
John graduated with honors from Harvard, where he studied economics and rowed on the heavyweight crew. 
 
John understands the need in business communities throughout Colorado for professional business brokerage services. Often long-established businesses simply close after decades of serving their communities because they are not aware of the professional business brokerage services provided by VR Business Brokers. With VR's guidance, sellers get paid for their years of hard work, and buyers acquire their dreams, all in a confidential transaction which VR manages professionally.

Holly Miller
AmBoh, LLC - doTERRA Essential Oils
Owner - Natural Wellness Coach
My name is Holly Miller, I am a Wife, Mom, Gami, Sister, Daughter, Entrepreneur and an Expert in Essential Oils! I was raised in Colorado by 2 amazing (sill married) parents and love the outdoors where you will find me climbing mountains, scuba diving, paddle boarding or simply soaking in the Natural Hot Springs Pools. 

I moved away from Colorado in the early 1990's living from California to Hawaii and Philadelphia, though my heart always belonged in Colorado - In the fall of 2015 we took the plunge and moved to my home town of Glenwood Springs! 

My ultimate goal is to educate and bring together everyday people and health care professionals alike with a common goal of natural health and wellness through the use of essential oils.

I'm excited to share with the world my experiences and looking forward to helping YOU along this journey!!
