“I joined the GreyStone board to further expand my involvement in my community. I enjoy serving as a GreyStone director because it allows me to use my training and experience to help continue the services GreyStone provides to the communities it serves, both in its capacity as a power supplier and as a citizen of these communities. My varied experience in the legal field, particularly my past experience as GreyStone’s legal counsel and my service on the Georgia EMC Association, has allowed me to better understand GreyStone’s functions and capabilities. This allows me to make more informed decisions regarding GreyStone’s operations.”
