I have been the Food Service Director at La Cima since March 2003. I enjoy the Members and staff at La Cima, as well as the challenge that comes along with food service.
I was born near Mexico City, and grew up close to Teotihuacan where the historic pyramids reside. I moved to the United States in 1986 and after graduating high school I began working in the food service industry, from cooking in the kitchen to working as a server while attending Junior College. I joined ClubCorp in 1994 as a sever at the University Club on top of Galleria where I met my wife, I worked my way up until I transferred to La Cima where I received my Certification as a Service Director.
I have two wonderful children, Zachary 16 years old and Ava 12 years old and I enjoy every minute with them!
The Members, the staff and the sense of accomplishment make this a GREAT place to work!

Born and raised in Arlington, Texas, Elizabeth grew up loving theatre, sports and movies. Her favorite channel was Turner Classic Movies rather than Cartoon Network. Most people know that she has a knack for timely movie quotes or trivia.
Growing up in Arlington, she was a quick ride away to the stadiums of the Texas Rangers and Dallas Cowboys so she has always kept those teams closest to her heart. She previously worked for the Texas Rangers Baseball Club and has a vast knowledge of America’s pastime.
Elizabeth attended the University of Missouri, the same school her father graduated from in 1968. Elizabeth participated in Dance Marathon, Student Athletic Board, Kappa Delta Sorority and was constantly volunteering any chance she could get. She even volunteered to be a mascot for our local Children’s Hospital!
Prior to joining La Cima, Elizabeth was the Membership Coordinator at Tower Club in Dallas. As the Membership Coordinator she wore several hats around the club. With over 10,000 downtown Dallas residents who use the club for membership, events, and socializing she has done everything from brining in new members to serving cocktails on Thursday nights. For several months she filled in for the Director of Member Relations and created new programming and led Tower Club to new milestones in social media outreach and presence.
Role: Executive Chef Serving Since: 2005 Email Scott Blankinship
Executive chef at La Cima club in Las Colinas since July of 2015 and I have been cooking professionally for over 20 years. I have been with Club Corp for 10 years and most of those years were at Tower Club in downtown Dallas. I worked as an executive sous chef for 4 years at Tower and 4 years as the Executive Chef. I went to culinary school at El Centro College, a Dallas county community college, where I learned the basics of classical cooking. I then got an apprenticeship at The Adolphus Hotel where I worked for 7 years in every kitchen outlet except the cafeteria. I worked 6 of those years in the French Room. I have always loved to cook and help my Mom and Dad whenever I got the chance. My first real job was at Catfish Village in Longview. I was a bus boy and wanted to be a cook because they got to eat whenever they were hungry but never got the chance until I went to Whataburger. I worked at all 4 Whataburger’s in Longview and was a late night manager for 2 years and then moved up to assistant manager and then decided I wanted to learn how to cook real food so I went to work as a fry cook at Chili’s and then moved on to Outback as a grill cook but was not satisfied with that although I was really good at it and was offered the kitchen manager position. I turned it down and moved to Dallas and it turned out to be a great decision.
