Florida State Senator Denise Grimsley is this week’s featured guest. In our conversation, we talk about growing up in rural Florida, working in health care and about taking over her family’s business.

We also discuss how running a business prepared Senator Grimsley to be a state legislator and what it’s been like for her to serve her community, particularly in the days and weeks after Hurricane Irma. We also talk about her current campaign for Florida Commissioner of Agriculture & Consumer Services and her goals for the statewide office.
