After six years with Griff's Electric, Kerissa is saying a tearful goodbye to her customers, coworkers and family as she accepts a position with Nature USA.
Kerissa first came to Griff's Electric, Inc. in January 2009 during the tumultuous financial meltdown. With the guidance of her father Griff, the patience from Albert and her coworkers and the notes her grandmother Phyllis left, she began the challenging task of understanding the contracting business and the electrical industry.
In 2012 Kerissa decided to go back to school to pursue her Master's in Business Administration (MBA) at CSULB. With the newly acquired skills and the help from her colleague Jody, Kerissa was able to create a marketing and social media program to help customers connect to Griff's Electric online and through their mobile devices.
"Working alongside my mom and dad, I learned the importance of service and kindness. After six years here, my colleagues and customers feel more like family then acquaintances. I'm really going to miss all of the friends I've made. I want to thank them for all of the generosity they have shown me. I look forward to helping my new company, coworkers and customers with the same dedication and work ethic that I learned at Griff's Electric, Inc. In fact, my new company Nature USA is family owned and located just under 6 miles away from Griff's Electric's office. I won't be far and as I've told Jody, Albert and my dad, I'm just a phone call away!'
