Brent Griffis began his public-sector career as an administrative assistant at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education. After honing the skills necessary to meet the needs of a busy professional development office, Brent transitioned to Athens Technical College where he served as the sole administrative staff member in the College’s Technology, Engineering & Manufacturing division.
Brent’s career path briefly took a different trajectory, and he found a new role as a research technician in the Center for Vaccines and Immunology at UGA’s College of Veterinary Medicine, assisting with lab work related to the development of new Coronavirus vaccines as part of the NIH-funded SPARTA study.
As the SPARTA grant ended, Brent joined the human resources team of Auxiliary Services, refreshing and advancing his knowledge of UGA systems, policies, and procedures.
As a new administrative associate in the ADPR department, Brent looks forward to helping the faculty, staff, and students of Grady College maintain a culture of cooperation and efficiency.
