Staff Splash – Meet Colleen Grace

Posted: Monday, April 24, 2023

Colleen Grace, administrative office assistant, ensures excellent customer service for our employees and customers.

Q: What is your favorite thing about working in the water industry?

A: I did not realize there were so many facets of the water industry: legislative, legal, regulatory, operational and many more. It takes a lot of dedicated and talented people to operate a water district, which Mesa Water is fortunate to have in abundance. I love my Mesa Water family and am thankful every day.

Q: What would people find the most interesting about your role?

A: In my position as administrative office assistant, I am fortunate to be able to interact with every aspect of the business on a daily basis – from the Board of Directors to the General Manager, to operations, engineering, customer service and finance personnel.

Q: What would you like the community to know about Mesa Water?

A: Mesa Water leadership and its employees truly care about being able to supply reliable, safe water, an essential, basic need, to the community for generations to come. We invest in our infrastructure and look for innovative ways to develop new water sources to maintain our 100% local supply.

Q: When you are not at work, what do you like to do for fun?

I love butterflies. During the pandemic, I bought my first milkweed plant and started raising monarch butterflies. It was amazing to watch them transform from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis and finally, emerging as an adult monarch butterfly.
