|Role:||Assistant Catering Director|
Nicole Kelly graduated from Johnson and Wales University Magna Cum Laude with an Associates and Bachelors Degree in Entrepreneurship and Business in 2006 with concentrations in Psychology, Leadership and Marketing. During her time there, Nicole had an internship in England with Textron Incorporated, learning and studying operations management. She put this to use after graduation pursuing her passion in restaurant management working for Doherty Enterprises. After a few years Nicole needed a change in hours and environment so she decided to try a new passion: event planning. She worked with Jamba Team Promotions for a short while raising awareness for Amber Alert through event-based marketing before moving on to Bowlmor Lanes, a high-end entertainment and catering concept. At Bowlmor Lanes Nicole started off as the operations and event manager for the New Hyde Park location and helped out in the Manhattan locations, organizing and operating events from cocktail/birthday parties to weddings while also managing the day to day operations. After 3 years with the company Nicole assisted in the preparation and opening of their new 90,000 square foot venue in Times Square, New York. Once the new location was up and running and with her own wedding coming up in September 2011, Nicole decided it was time to work closer to home. Nicole joined the ClubCorp team in June 2011 as assistant private events director and an interim member relations coordinator. Nicole and her husband of 4 months reside in Greenlawn, New York.
