I was born and raised in Shawnee, Oklahoma, and graduated from Dale High School in 1989. I completed my undergraduate studies for pre-pharmacy at Rose State College in Midwest City, OK while on a basketball scholarship. I graduated in 1994 with a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy degree from Southwestern Oklahoma State University. I moved to College Station, TX in 1994 where I worked for Eckerd Drug until October 1995 as a pharmacy manager. I accepted a position as a staff pharmacist with Walmart Stores, Inc. in Bryan, TX in October 1995 and was then promoted to Pharmacy Manager in 1997. I moved back to Oklahoma in 1998 as a pharmacy manager with Walmart and in 2002 was promoted to Pharmacy District Manager for the Oklahoma City district. In 2010, I was promoted to Regional Health and Wellness Director for the state of OK. I took a step back in 2017 and am currently a Market Health and Wellness Director in south central Oklahoma. I am a certified APhA immunization trainer and a member of OPhA. I married my high school sweetheart, Chris Griggs, and we have been married for 29 years. Chris and I live in Shawnee, OK and have 3 beautiful daughters, Ryanne is a pharmacist for Walmart, Sydney is an RN for Saint Anthony’s in OKC, and Karsen is a senior at Dale Public Schools where Chris and I both graduated from. Karsen will be attending Kansas University on a softball scholarship next fall. We are very active with different school-sponsored and community events. Our daughters all play or have played competitive travel softball and travel across the United States playing tournaments. I enjoy spending time with family and friends as well as helping coach and cheer on my daughters at their games and various events.
