The Chief Deputy is responsible for the administration and supervision of the day-to-day operations of the Office of the Clerk for the District of North Dakota.

Grossman graduated with honors from the University of North Dakota with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology in 2010 and earned her Juris Doctor from the University of North Dakota School of Law in 2014.

After graduation, she completed a one-year clerkship with former North Dakota Court Justice Carol Ronning Kapsner and a three-year federal district court clerkship for Judge Daniel L. Hovland.
