Griffin received a bachelor's degree in history from Oberlin College, Oberlin, Ohio, in 1995, and a master's degree in city planning from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, in 2002.
Griffin was formerly the executive director of the Laramie Main Street Program.

The UW CES CNP program helps Food Stamp Program-eligible residents learn how to eat better for less and stretch their Food Stamp buying power. CNP provides educational opportunities for Wyoming families and individuals with limited resources that lead to having access to an affordable, available, adequate, nutritious and safe food supply.
