Who is Mieko Hester-Perez

President of CA Corporate & Attorney Services, Inc., Co-Founder The Unconventional Foundation for Autism UF4A.ORG an informational website, Board member of NORML Womans Alliance, Acology Inc. and Cannabis Science Inc. 

In 2009, I decided to go public with my son's success with medical cannabis and was invited on FOX Morning News, The Doctors Show, ESPN Radio, The Dr. Juan Rivera Show, NBC syndicates, CBS, Good Morning America with Diane Sawyer, and “Inspiring Parents” on ABC’s 20/20 special segments. I’ve been honored to gracefully bridge two misunderstood communities by dignifying the pages of High Times, Spectrum Magazine and numerous publications as a pioneer to this ground breaking treatment.

Our humble journey has been aired internationally on The Columbian Latin American News Network, Univision and Telemundo American Spanish-language broadcast television networks, The ABC Fusion Channel and Australia’s number one morning show in the United Kingdom. Becoming a source of inspiration for other families lending my voice for unconventional and holistic treatment options within the autism spectrum has been my mission in life.

With my combined legal background & special education savvy resources, I’ve successfully been a “Warrior” for any family that contacts me. As President of CA Corporate & Attorney Services Inc., my experience with being legal support for law firms nationwide for over 15 years has helped me effectively guide families in the special needs arena.

As Co-founder of UF4A.ORG, an informational website I now consult with families, autism organizations, universities and healthcare professionals who have exhausted all other treatments.

My efforts to help families in the autism community have helped me to achieve Congressional Recognition for my community service work.

Along with my supportive cannabis team, my expertise in cannabis navigating with special needs families has given me a place with a specific position on the NORML’s Woman’s Alliance; One of the most progressive internationally known Marijuana organizations for Reform of Marijuana Laws. This new role ensures no family will be left behind when choosing this treatment.

In 2015, I accepted a position on the Acology advisory board. This position has allowed me to create a custom, child-resistant, FDA approved container to bring awareness to a particular cannabis strain for persons on the autism spectrum appropriately titled “Joey’s Strain” Medtainer.

Although Medical Marijuana is not known to be a cure for Autism, it has been proven to facilitate "LIFE" for my son and has ushered him into his most progressive developmental period ever. Today, at age 16, Joey is flourishing with new communicative expressions, he's gained over 98 lbs, and he’s happier, healthier, better behaved and is more productive than ever before. Deep within my soul, I feel blessed to have Joey as my son. Joey’s condition has provided us with an opportunity to be a part of a noble cause far greater than ourselves.
