Our Team

Tari Keeme RN, BSN, CCRN, ACM

Director of Product Development and Education

I am a registered nurse currently working at Scripps Hospital in La Jolla. I have 20+ years of experience in critical care and trauma. Scripps Health has always embraced the healing arts, including music therapy, pet therapy and healing touch. This has let me continue to follow my passion for alternative healthcare. I have been able to bring additional holistic health applications to the trauma department by offering essential oils to our patients and family’s.

I hope that providing Cannibis Education to our community will bring a new level of well being to our future. I am excited to be on this new journey in my career. I imagine the day that holistic healthcare is the gold standard for health.

Marko Keeme

Inya Hemp CEO

Marko, was a paramedic for over 20 years and CEO of VistingMD a medical practice for over 15 years. He decided to change focus when we found out his father had lymphoma. He now devotes his time hemp farming.

Marko’s father, Oscar, was diagnosed with stage 4 lymphoma five years ago and given 6 months to live without treatment. He opted for chemotherapy and we gave him our hemp derived CBD products. He tolerated the chemotherapy treatment very well with minimal side effects, he was just very tired.

In fact, the oncologist had admitted him to the hospital for 5 days for the first round of chemotherapy as a precaution, but he was able to go home early. He had minimal negative side effects from the chemotherapy, in fact, he never lost his appetite. His oncologist was amazed with the results and now he is in full remission. This and many other success stories with our family and friends has led us to this new business adventure.

Marko and I both want to educate our community on Industrial Hemp Farming and what it can do to improve our lives and our environment. In addition to the medicinal aspect, hemp farming brings communities together. Hemp farming has made our family stronger and healthier. We want to share this with our colleagues in healthcare and our surrounding community.
