Jeremy Grubbs – Procurement Specialist

I moved to East Tennessee from the San Joaquin Valley in Central California. I studied Business Administration at Bakersfield College. I have held diverse full-time positions ranging from airport security, car mechanic, and oilfield crew lead to accounts receivable and accounts payable.

Volunteering with the Bakersfield Police Explorers for seven years, going through the Junior Police Academy, and attending Devil Pups in Camp Pendleton, Calif. in 2005, I have a growing fascination with youth programs and the benefits extended to the participants. I strive to one day contribute to these programs so that the youth of America can continue to experience these life-changing programs.

I enjoy the quiet life East Tennessee provides, a sharp contrast to the busy lifestyle of California. I am no stranger to meeting deadlines and have come to appreciate the ability to slow down and pay attention to the beauty afforded by mother nature and to those that matter most to me. A slow cruise through the country side, a creaky rocking chair on the front porch, or sitting hand-in-hand with that special someone around a fire are my new passions.
