Angi Grassley, Community Relations Director
Starting at Pride in 2010, Angi Grassley is currently a community relations director. She was born in Urbandale, Iowa and received her bachelor of science degree in human services from Metropolitan State University. Grassley discovered Pride Institute through a friend and instantly connected with the community. As a part of the recovery community since 2007, and also the LGBTQ+ community, it was a natural fit. She is passionate about being a part the patients’ recovery journey and seeing them transition into the best version of themselves. She continually feels rejuvenated by her work and loves talking with professionals who have sent their clients to Pride. Seeing former patients in the community going to school or working in the mental health field is also very gratifying. In her free time you can catch Grassley running, watching the Minnesota Lynx win championships, woodworking and spending time with her two kids and her pets.
