Grabbe, Kimberly A. ACP, FRP
Chapter President

My name is Kim Grabbe. I have been a PAF member since 2011. I was born and raised here in Sarasota. I am the senior paralegal in the vaccine department of Maglio Christopher & Toale, PA, where I have worked for 8 years. I graduated from Hodges University in 2008 with an Associates Degree in Paralegal Studies. I received my CP through NALA in 2012 and ACP in 2013. In 2016, I completed NALA’s 12-month Leadership Enhancement and Preparation Program (LEAP) in order to help members develop leadership skills to be used at the local, state, and national level. I currently serve as a committee member for NALA’s Professional Development Committee and the State College of Florida’s Paralegal Studies Program Advisory Board. Prior to becoming a paralegal, I worked for the Sarasota Sheriff’s Office for 10 years, in the 9-1-1 center where I served as a supervisor, Emergency Medical Dispatch Quality Assurance officer, and Training Officer. When I’m not at work I enjoy time with my family, my two fur babies and the occasional half marathon or adventure race. I look forward to serving all of you !
