I was born and raised in Butte. Following graduation, I took advantage of a scholarship and attended college in Missouri. I returned to Butte for a limited time and was employed at a bank in the New Accounts and Bookkeeping Departments.
Subsequently, the next five years were spent in Chicago where I held the positions of department coordinator and then department manager for a large advertising agency.
After my elopement, I moved to Texas.
I continued my career as an account executive for a printing, advertising and fund-raising company until we moved to Alaska where I added, "mom" to my resume. I was fortunate to be able to stay at home with my children and be an active Air-Force wife for several years. During that time, I volunteered within every community that we lived for numerous organizations and in several capacities. I began substitute teaching when my youngest child started school.
After returning to Montana and settling into a new life in Great Falls, I resumed substituting for a short time. I signed on as an office manager for a small business for a few years and then returned to Great Falls Public Schools as the “Nitecap” secretary. I became the administrative assistant for the Adult Education Program when the department moved to Great Falls College MSU; presently I am the Data Specialist and Community Connections liaison for our program.
I am married to Major Robert (Bob) Griffith, USAF retired, and math instructor at Great Falls High School and we have four (4) children.
I am proud to be part of the adult education team that is “Creating Choices, Improving Chances, & Motivating Changes” for the clients in our program. I often say that I have a “feel good” job! I love the people that I work with, the place that I work and more importantly, I love the work we do. I truly believe we make a difference in people’s lives. Our mission is believing every person has purpose, value and potential. We feel there is “greatness” in everyone and we guide our clients on their path to the HSE Diploma, path to higher education, path to career and path to citizenship.
If you have any questions about Adult Education, please contact me or stop by the Adult Ed Center, and I would be happy to discuss our program with you!
