Ellen Wood, General Manager
My name is Ellen Wood and I have been with Grimsley's since 1999. I remained at Grimsley's after graduation from Oklahoma State University in 2002, with a BS in marketing. I spend my days managing, purchasing and striving for happiness. Away from work I spend most of my time with my family, which includes my husband Jason and kids Ainsley and Carter. We love being active, including spending a lot of time outdoors, shopping, eating new foods, exploring, traveling and tons more. I volunteer at my kid's schools and try to cram as much as possible into a day. That's me in a nutshell.

Jenny Hentges, Lead Sales Support
I have been with Grimsley’s since January of 2000. I do a little bit of a lot of things here, but my main position is Main Sales Support, meaning I back up our entire sales team. I have been married to my husband Gavin since 2006 and in 2010 we had a little boy, Gideon. We also have two furry kids, Maggie and Radar our Boston Terriers. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my little family! We all three love to laugh and make sure whatever it is we’re doing we make it fun!
Sarah McConnell, Customer Service Representative
My twin sister and I were born in Oklahoma City but were raised in Tulsa. I lived there for 23 years until I moved to Oklahoma City on 2012 for a full year. I then moved to Stillwater in December 2013 and I've enjoyed my time here ever since. I'm currently in school right now, hoping to work in the medical field on day. I have two cats who are my fur children, Miracle and Tail.
