I have been with Grimsley’s since January of 2000. In this time I have gained experience in just about every position at Grimsley’s. My current title of Office Coordinator gives me the chance to put all of that experience to good use everyday. I enjoy what I do and even more than that I enjoy coming to work everyday surrounded by people I consider friends and family! When I am not working I stay busy and exhausted having fun with my 2 kids! I love art, and when I have spare time I can be found creating something colorful!
