Chief executive officer
Bill Parker brings a combination of operational discipline and personal compassion to his role as CEO of LeafLine Labs. Drawing on his military service and prior work experience, Bill understands the need for structure and precision in building trust and delivering consistent, high-quality results in this emerging industry. And, fueled by his experience in emergency medicine and his son's heroic battle with pediatric cancer, Bill is also deeply committed to helping relieve human suffering and believes medicinal cannabis offers a solution for many debilitating and life-threatening conditions.
Prior to being named CEO, Bill led Operations at LeafLine Labs for more than two years, introducing critical processes and best practices to a startup organization. Before joining LeafLine, Parker was employed as a paramedic for 14 years, working in both clinic and ambulance settings, with an emphasis on operations and emergency preparedness. During that time, he witnessed firsthand the negative effects of opiates and addiction.
Parker also served in the United States Army for four years of active duty in field artillery. He spent one of those years in S2 and cross-trained in intelligence.
He is married with three children, meditates daily, and is passionate about spending time outdoors, especially fishing, with family and friends.
