Meghan Grimsley

Student and Volunteer in Hollywood, FL

Welcome to my official About.Me page! Obviously, if you are viewing this page, then you want to get know a little bit about me. So, here it goes...

My name is Meghan Grimsley and I am a native South Floridian. I am married to the love of my life, Mark, who is not only my husband, but my best friend and biggest supporter. We are not parents yet, but hopefully one day we will hear the pitter-patter of little feet around the house.

I am a Senior at Florida International University, majoring in Public Administration, and I am set to graduate this semester, Fall 2013. I also have my Associates Degree in Fire Science Technology from St. Petersburg College. In addition, I have my Fire Inspector I, Fire Inspector II, and Fire Investigator I certifications. I am also a licensed EMT in the State of Florida. This coming January, I am on track to start Broward Fire Academy. I am also an American Heart Association Basic Life Support (CPR, AED, First Aid) and Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.) instructor, and a Safe Kids Worldwide certified Child Passenger Safety Technician with Hallandale Beach Fire Rescue.

After I complete the fire academy next year, I plan on moving on in my academic career and start working on a Master's Degree in Public Health with a concentration on Disaster Management and Humanitarian Relief at University of South Florida. In the meantime, I have been working for the past 10 years as an Office Manager and Registered Medical Assistant at an outpatient psychiatric office in Hollywood.

Outside of work and school, I am one of the volunteer Assistant Games Coordinators with Special Olympics - Track and Field of Miami-Dade County I also volunteer with Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital in Hollywood and assist them with their various health fairs and events, such as the Back 2 School Physicals, Teddy Bear Clinic, and Special Needs Resource Fairs.

On a personal note, I am kid at heart! I am a diehard Twilight Saga fan (yes, I know, it's lame but I love Edward Cullen). I am also a lover of all things Marvel Comics and Star Wars related. I am also a freelance writer and hope to one day publish a work of fiction of my own. Also in my downtime, I enjoy perusing websites such as,, and to keep up with the latest in all things celebrity and movies.

I am an open book, so if you have any questions, feel free to email me.
