Meet Patrick Ray
Meet Patrick Ray, one of our awesome field representatives at Pree since 2022. In addition to his time on the lab side of the cannabis industry, he’s also had experience running an indoor grow operation. Before that, Patrick was in the hospitality space, where he put in 11 years of hotel management for Hyatt Hotels and Resorts.
What Patrick likes about working in the cannabis industry is that every day is unique, and he gets the chance to meet lots of interesting people from all kinds of different backgrounds. He sees it as a privilege to get to travel around Oregon and see so much of what our state has to offer. He says that as he gets to know the people he meets, he loves hearing what brought them into the cannabis industry — everyone has such a great story. And there is always the common throughline of community.
Before life in Oregon, Patrick grew up near Boulder, Colorado. He developed a passion for the outdoors living right up against the Rocky Mountains. When he’s not on the job, you may cross paths with him on hiking trails, backpacking, camping, or off-roading. He has a wonderful daughter, and he shares his life with Brittany, his partner of the last 10 years. They have two dogs named Kenobi and Cherokee, who love to join them on their outdoor adventures.
