ATLANTA – Amy Grover, Senior Administrator Coordinator at Georgia State University College of Law, has decided to return with her husband, Josh Taub, to their home state of Washington. Amy joined the staff of the College of Law in April 2009.
“Everyone at the law school will miss Amy,” said Charity Scott, Director of the Center for Law, Health & Society. “She has made friends among faculty and colleagues across our law community, and has been a genuine pleasure for all to work with. She was invaluable for our Center’s management, and did an amazing job of juggling many diverse administrative responsibilities, always with a wonderful can-do attitude and incredible competence.”
Grover will be working at North Seattle Community College in the President’s Office as the Executive Assistant to the President, Mark Mitsui. In that capacity, she will be providing public relations support, coordinating special events hosted by the college, serving as principal liaison for the president, and assisting in developing and maintaining relationships within the college community and across its community partners and state agencies.
Taub is a pilot for Express Jet Airlines. Grover and Taub met while attending Curtis Senior High School in University Place, Washington.
Both are excited to be moving back home and in particular to the Emerald City (Seattle). They have many friends and family members – including mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. – who live in various Washington communities. Grover is looking forward to spending time on Mount Rainier with her family as she did throughout her childhood, and Taub is excited to cruise the Puget Sound in their friend’s sailboat.
Both are also looking forward to starting a family in the next few years surrounded by their family and friends. “Josh’s dad in particular has been wanting his first grandchild since Josh and I started dating over seven years ago,” said Grover.
Amy has enjoyed working for the College of Law and in her role with the Center for Law, Health & Society. “I have never met a group of people so dedicated to what they do. It has been such a pleasure to work with a group that has made me feel so respected and valued,” said Grover. “I will never be able to replace the wonderful feeling I get being part of the Center. I have enjoyed watching the Center grow and be recognized for its outstanding work, and I have learned so much. I will take everything I have gained here with me in my new role.”
“We wish Amy all the best for great happiness and success in her next steps,” said Scott. “We know she will be superb at whatever she does, and we are delighted to see her and Josh embrace these new directions in their lives.”
“I’ll miss Georgia,” Grover acknowledged. “The people, the weather – I never thought I’d say that! – and the southern accents: you know who you are Cindy Perry and Karen Butler! I am so thankful I have been able to call Georgia home for the last four years. I’m excited to begin the next adventure in my life and would like to thank the faculty and staff of the College of Law for sharing in this chapter of my life.”
