Hello Woodside and Aiken, South Carolina!  It is my pleasure to be your Membership Director at Woodside Plantation Country Club.  I look forward to learning more and enjoying the beautiful Aiken community. 

My path to Aiken certainly has been an interesting one, as I was born in Wisconsin and lived in Green Bay, Kansas City and St. Louis before finally settling in Columbia, Missouri in Jr. High School.  I spent the next 18 years there, where my professional career began after receiving my degree from the College of Business at the University of Missouri (Mizzou!).  My first professional position after graduating was as Assistant Golf Professional at Columbia Country Club, and my roles continued over the next 5 ½ years into the last role I had as Membership and Tournament Director. 

I then left the business and spent a year working for a small Website Design and Marketing company as their New Business Development Manager.  Soon, Mizzou came calling again and I began working in the Development Office for the University, and spent much of my time on the East Coast visiting some of our prominent alums. 

After 2 years at Mizzou and our move to the SouthEastern Conference, a move to Aiken, South Carolina  in the heart of SEC territory only seemed fitting with my return to the golf business.  I look forward to many successes here at Woodside and getting to know all of our wonderful members and their families as we continue to show this is the best Club in the area.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me with your questions and your ideas.
