I grew up in San Diego planning my friends' birthday parties, and by the time I was at Occidental College I was running fundraisers and coordinating campus events. After graduation, I knew where my career would go. I became interested in private clubs in particular during my two years at our sister club, the University Club atop Symphony Towers in San Diego, and I am excited to begin a new chapter at Bernardo Heights.
When I am not at work, I volunteer with Junior League of San Diego and work on petitions for Change.org to help animals around the world. I am really looking forward to getting to know the Members and Guests of Bernardo Heights and working to bring their ideas to life!
