"I spent over ten years in corporate compliance and ethics, building rapport, trust, and helping people understand why it is important to protect our company brand and do the right thing. I want to continue that passion by supporting my colleagues at Grimmway Schools by adding value, while complying with relevant laws and regulations."
"My grandfather came to this country as a migrant farmworker at the turn of the 20th century. Inspired by his belief in a better life for his family in America, this self-taught man who raised me to appreciate the values of rural life led me to Grimmway Schools. Contributing to the lives of young people and inspiring them to achieve greatness is what fuels my passion for education - it's the greatest reward of being a part of the Grimmway team."
"It is gratifying to be a part of an organization that is committed to closing the achievement gap in underserved communities. In my short time here, I have been inspired by our students’ abilities to excel in an environment that constantly challenges them to be better scholars and citizens."
"I originally went to school to be a teacher because I love helping people learn and grow. Working in HR gives me the ability to do that in a different way; by assisting with employee relations issues and providing professional development opportunities."
"As a native Californian, and a resident of Kern County for more than 30 years, I have been blessed with a great education, a supportive community, and the bounties of the Central Valley, including access to healthy foods and a healthy lifestyle. With those gifts comes a responsibility to make sure everyone in our community has access to those opportunities, which is why investing in student success, college readiness, and healthy lifestyle choices is so important to me."
