Millennial entrepreneur, Karson Humiston, is the founder and CEO of the largest recruiting agency in the cannabis industry, Vangst. After being turned away by career services at St. Lawrence University for inquiring about careers in the cannabis industry, Karson decided to create a company that helps people secure careers in the fast emerging industry. Karson, age 25, now leads a team of over 30 people who have filled more than 5,500 positions to date.

Prior to On Track Adventures, Karson started many small businesses growing up, including a resale golf ball company, where at the age of 11 Karson was employing two of her peers to help her collect, clean and resell golf balls.
