She is passionate about helping others and has over 14 years of experience with managing the financial and strategic aspects of operations. She has a broad range of knowledge and experience within business, marketing, and leadership.

Grangruth recently received her Master of Science in Management, with a marketing concentration, from Bellevue University. After many years of experience in management and some higher education, Grangruth chose a path that feeds her desire to serve the community and give back to others. Grangruth is boastfully proud of her son, Kaleb, who graduated from high school and became a United States Marine in 2020. She is also a proud mother to her daughter, Kendyll, who attends school at Muenster ISD. There, she participates in softball, basketball, and UIL. The baby of the family is Remi, a dapple-colored Dachshund, who loves to play and fetch. Grangruth enjoys spending most of her free time with family, exercising, baking cookies or cooking, being outdoors for any reason, and exploring new places.

Grangruth states “As a proud and long-time resident of Cooke County, I have been privileged to witness the impact of how giving back to the community has improved people’s lives and has helped so many in need. I am excited to work with the amazing people in the community and with the Cooke County United Way’s Board of Directors. I’m looking forward to bringing the work of essential businesses and organizations to help more people in our community.”
