Role: Private Events Director Serving Since: 2000 Phone Number: 724.625.2220 x226
In 2015, I was fortunate to celebrate my 15 year anniversary with ClubCorp. I started out at Treesdale Golf & Country Club in August of 2000 as a Manager in Training. After a year and a half, I accepted the Service Director position at Piedmont Golf Club in Haymarket, Virginia. After working long hours and missing my hometown, I was given the opportunity to come back to Treesdale as the Private Events & Tournament Director.
Before starting with ClubCorp, I graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Management. All of my professors at Penn State were trying to convince me to go into restaurant chains or hotels, but I was determined to get a job in a private club. After my experience growing up through the ranks at Greensburg Country Club and doing my internship at The Country Club of Brookline, Massachusettes, I knew private clubs was where I belonged. During my internship at The Country Club, I participated in the planning and execution of The 1999 Ryder Cup Tournament, it was there that my passion for planning events grew stronger. So in the summer of 2013 when I was presented with the opportunity at Treesdale, I gladly accepted. It was not only coming home to Pittsburgh, but coming home to a club that has meant so much to me.
I have been fortunate to work in wonderful clubs and met a lot of phenomenal people over my time, but Treesdale will always be special to me for many reasons. First, it has been a pleasure to grow relationships with our members, watch their families grow and even miss some that are no longer with us. It has been an honor to plan events with so many of you and to see your special days unfold. The second reason Treesdale will forever have a place in my heart is that I met my husband Steve while working at the club. The forbidden work romance worked out well for us, we enjoyed working with each other, got married in 2007 and have been blessed with two wonderful boys, Logan and Liam.
