My love for the hospitality industry started when serving in high school and college especially at our ClubCorp property, Canyon Creek Country Club. From there I expanded my horizons graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Administration at Oklahoma State University in 2016. Coming from a school with a great hospitality program, this is what inspired me to lean towards Private Events. I was then able to understand operations of a successful event while working as a banquet server during my time at OSU. In 2016, I was offered the position as Event Coordinator here at Brookhaven Country Club, where I truly realized my passion for event sales and being able to work directly with each member or client.
I am truly honored in being promoted and now serve as your Event Manager. Learning the in's and out's of this Club has really helped me to be successful as an Event Manager. I have really embraced being able to help others and love to connect with each person that walks through our door. It has become my home away from home so I am excited to make it yours with each event you are planning to host!
Katie began her career in Hospitality in 2007, after studying hospitality management at the University of North Texas, where her desires and dreams eventually lead her to Private Events.
