Malorie La Fuente - CLS CEO/ Scientific Director

Malorie La Fuente, CLS

CEO / Laboratory Director

“Everything happens for a reason. And I feel extremely honored to say that so many things have brought me to Desert Cannalytix. This is an exciting time for cannabis, not only locally for Las Vegas, but on a national and even global scale. As legalization becomes a reality, it’s important that labs keep consumers safe and informed. It’s even more important that the lab itself works in close collaboration with it’s customers and with regulatory bodies so cannabis can continue to grow. I have been in laboratory management for 7+ years now and have served as a lab inspector for 4. I am excited to carry this experience into my own endeavor and enter the land of creation and innovation. When Bonito, my CFO and I decided to become partners, I knew that for Desert Cannalytix, the sky would be the limit.”

His prior experience from 2008-2012 as a Financial Professional where he earned his FINRA licenses (Series 7 & 66) combined with his 15 years in finance overall (accounting, taxation, and banking), has given him the wisdom necessary to be the perfect combination of the financial leader Desert Cannalytix needs to innovate & succeed.
