Sales Support & Customer Service Representative

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!

I was born in Tulare, California in 1991 and had lived there most of my life. Since I was a kid in the big city, I always knew I would live in the country one day. Hard work and a peaceful life is what I hoped to give my wife and 3 daughters. I've been with Grimsleys since 2021 and it has been an amazing opportunity for me to grow. People work together as a team and that's what I like the most. I hope to continue learning to become more than just a driver. When I'm not working, I enjoy time with my family.
