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 finishing her last semester of RN school, and Karsen is a junior at Dale Public Schools where Chris and I both graduated from.  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.
