Marie Garrett

Brookhaven City Manager Marie Garrett is assisting with the launch of Reinhardt University’s master’s in public administration program.

Garrett is teaching a graduate level introductory class in public administration this year. According to the city of Brookhaven, Garrett has more than 30 years of experience launching and running city governments, including working as a top-level administrator in Alpharetta, Canton, Johns Creek and Brookhaven.

“I learned so much over the years and want to be able to give back,” Garrett said. “This is such an exciting field and it’s always changing, especially with the number of new cities that have been created in recent years.”
