Interview with Drop Top Company (@droptop_co)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
In my final year of college, I was on the path toward medical school to become a neuroscientist/ neuroresearcher.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
Each month we donate 10% of each sale toward two foundations at the forefront of battling the opioid epidemic, and a lot of experiences have transpired throughout this process to show me that what we do does touch people – especially those in recovery and those who have a close loved one who suffered with addiction – and each time is just as impactful as the last.
