Rob Collings

Sales Representative

Rob moved to Frederick County at the age of five. After graduating from Middletown High, Rob went on to West Virginia University where he competed on the cross-county and track teams and graduated with a B.A. in History.

During his time in college, Rob unfortunately suffered a compression fracture of his L1 and T9 vertebrae. Returning home to Maryland and becoming tired of taking prescription medications to manage his severe chronic pain and inflammation, Rob began to use CBD and THC exclusively to gain back his level of activity and overall wellbeing.

Rob is a Medical Cannabis Patient and CBD Advocate. His passion comes from educating the general public on the history, uses, and potential benefits of all things CBD and Cannabis.

Brigid ayer

Director of  Marketing

Brigid is a Frederick native and Hood College alumnae (B.A. ’15, M.B.A. ’18). She began her journey in the hemp and cannabis world in 2017 working for Kannavis dispensary as a bud tender and then Kannavis Trading Company as store manager. In 2019 she made the jump to join the Relef team as Director of Marketing.

After spending years in high level sports, chronic pain and other health conditions became a daily standard; finding CBD was a game changer in her health allowing her to get back to her normal, active lifestyle. Brigid has a passion for providing education on hemp and cannabis to help remove the stigma surrounding them. Helping people shift their opinion on this once taboo subject to become advocates is one of her favorite parts of being a part of the Relef team.

When she’s not at work you can find her hiking with her dogs, running, or volunteering around Frederick.
