Sibyl Swift, PhD joined cbdMD in 2021 as a regulatory consultant before being named vice president for Scientific & Regulatory Affairs. Prior to joining cbdMD, Swift was the Senior VP for Scientific & Regulatory Affairs at the Natural Products Association (NPA) where she led the association’s work in Codex, the Supplement Safety & Compliance Initiative (SSCI), and FDA policy. Before the NPA, Swift was the associate director for research and strategy at the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), where she directed the Office of Dietary Supplement Programs research agenda.

Swift explained that for her, supplements aren’t just a part of the job. 

“I actively use supplements,  I've used them for decades. I've always seen their benefits. And so when I took the position at FDA and Office of Dietary Supplement Programs, I was very excited because it was the first time that I could actually move back into that space,” ​said Swift. “And when I got to FDA, I really understood exactly how nuanced that space was, having gone from being a consumer and understanding the science to actually seeing the regulatory side.”

Whether it is work or home life, Swift said she has always taken the ‘why not?’ approach. 

“I haven't seen being a female as being a barrier or I haven't seen being a mom or being a single mom as a barrier. I honestly think that you can do anything. I don't see limitations. My favorite question is ‘why not?’ And my children are the reason that I do everything that I do–boys or girls. I want them to see that with hard work, you can essentially achieve anything you want to.”
