Star Jonathan Grant

Grant Bio Pic

Jonathan Grant moved to Waco in the Fall of 1989 to attend Baylor University. Intending to move back to San Antonio upon graduation, he chose to stay in Waco, attended grad school, and has grown to love this incredible central Texas community. In that time, he has owned a residential custom home and renovation company, served as associate pastor of Calvary Baptist Church, and built a real estate business. Jonathan took a hiatus from real estate the past three years to serve as executive director of World Hunger Relief Inc. He is thrilled to be back in the work that makes his heart sing with Camille Johnson Realtors. Jonathan is married to Amy Grant (not that Amy Grant), and together they have 4 children. Jonathan is a Waco ISD school board trustee and serves on the boards of the Baylor Line Foundation and the TB Maston Foundation. He loves cooking for friends, sharing deep conversations over good drinks, traveling to food destinations, attending Baylor athletics, investing in public schools, and watching his children grow to be kind, compassionate and engaged adults.

Stephanie’s desire to become Arthur Murray Franchisees all goes back to her passion for people.  Stephanie and her husband both agree that their first love is sharing the joy of dance with others and teaching their students, many of whom before coming to Arthur Murray, had never danced before.  Watching their students and staff grow and develop in their own dance journey is what they enjoy the most about being Arthur Murray Professionals.
