Founder Feature : Hope Wiseman


Mary & Main is proud to introduce the founders who have turned our dreams of helping people into a reality. If you missed our last post highlighting Dr. Bryant, check it out to catch up on his impressive background and his passion for patient care.

As we continue to feature the leadership here at Mary and Main, we turn the focus to Hope Wiseman. In the fall of 2017, Hope’s ambition and hard work led her to become the youngest black woman dispensary owner in the United States when she officially started Mary and Main.

Hope was born and raised in Prince George’s County, Maryland, graduating from the illustrious Spelman College where she received her Bachelor’s in Economics. Hope has always been passionate about serving her community and was known for her exceptional leadership skills in several campus organizations.

Of her many undergraduate accomplishments, Hope cites her time as co-founder of her alma mater’s Habitat for Humanity chapter as some of the most educational and inspiring opportunities she encountered on her road to entrepreneurship. After spending a year at SunTrust as an Equity Institutional Sales Analyst, Hope decided to continue striving for excellence by pursuing her dreams of entrepreneurship. With her financial and banking background, Hope founded Mary and Main (formerly Compassionate Herbal Alternative) on the foundation of her vision to create opportunity for minorities who have been disproportionately affected by the war on drugs.

Hope holds personally the core values of Mary & Main, making it her mission to provide quality products to her community while offering a comfortable experience to patients who suffer from chronic debilitating illnesses.  With our Grand Opening slated for Spring 2018, Hope and her colleagues are very excited to introduce Mary and Main to the world.
