In 2020 she co-founded the Chamber of Cannabis, a 501(c)(6) nonprofit and coalition composed of over 200 industry leaders in Nevada to build a more inclusive industry, foster connections, and move cannabis commerce forward. Baranowski currently serves as Vice President and Chairwoman for the Community Impact Committee.
