Grunch, ’06, named to UGA’s 40 under 40

Local neurosurgeon serves the public with mother in mind

On the shelf in Dr. Betsy Grunch’s office sits a football with a University of Georgia logo emblazoned on the front. It’s in a clear case, protected to ensure the signature of Todd Gurley, former Georgia Bulldogs and now Los Angeles Rams star running back, doesn’t fade away.

Grunch, a neurosurgeon with Longstreet Clinic in Gainesville and a Georgia graduate, said she’s always loved sports, though she didn’t grow up with a favorite team. Once she decided to attend Georgia, though, she became a fan and has been ever since.

Now, the university seems to be a fan of hers as she was recently named to Georgia’s “40 under 40” list.

“I’m very honored to be selected for this,” said Grunch, 38, a Gainesville native and West Hall High graduate. “It’s kind of neat to be in such a select group of graduates that represent UGA.”
