Caring. Welcoming. Warm. Vibrant. Smart. Funny. Full of life. These are just a few words and phrases that come to mind when remembering Patty Groce, former vice president of Human Relations here at Merritt Group. Patty served the agency for 10 years, bringing countless talented employees through the doors and caring for staff so well. She made a lasting impact on this agency and its culture of working hard, playing hard, and giving back, and is missed each and every day.
