Best Handywoman

Karen Grayson

Grayson and her sister were raised by a father who trained recent high school grads to be bricklayers, carpenters and plumbers. Though he said he never wanted his kids following that path, he’d bring home materials and help them do odd jobs for pocket money. A few decades and a career in construction later, and Grayson is still patching pipes and laying wood floors for a living. 702-542-4025 HK
