Deidra was born and raised just outside the city of Philadelphia, PA; and yes this means she’s a diehard Eagles fan! When it came time for her to attend college, her Dad gave her a southern limit of North Carolina, and that is how she ended up attending Johnson & Wales University here in Charlotte. Deidra’s degree is in Hotel and Lodging Management with a concentration in Weddings and Events. After she did an internship at a hotel she decided she didn’t want to make a career out of it. Luckily a friend introduced her to Private Clubs and thus began her career in the industry. Deidra said the reasoning behind this was: “I love getting to know members and building relationships with them.”
Serving Since: 2018

Annie and her husband, Andy, recently got married in September and reside in Waxhaw, NC where they bought a house in 2015. Annie and Andy are big Ohio State fans and (unfortunately) Cleveland Brown fans. In her spare time, Annie likes to watch football, hang out with her family, and take road trips with her husband and pup. Annie is going to be an aunt at the end of this year and couldn’t be more excited to spoil her nephew.
Originally from Ohio, Annie moved to Charlotte in 2010 to finish her degree at Johnson & Wales University in Sports, Entertainment and Event Management. She started her career in the country club atmosphere back in 2008 and knew that the private club industry is where she wanted to be. Since then, she has been at a few different clubs in the area and is joining us from Pine Island Country Club. While at Pine Island, Annie started as the Clubhouse Manager and then became the Membership Director. Annie said, “I love the membership side of the club industry. I love planning and executing events that people enjoy and seeing them happy.” Annie is very excited to be here and join the TPC Piper Glen family and can’t wait to get to know all the members and do anything and everything she can to help!
Josh Stone has been with us as the Director of tennis going on three years now. He was the head professional at Carmel Country Club before coming back to TPC Piper Glen. He has grown up playing tennis where his dad got him into it at an early age. He went on and played high school and Division I college tennis at Liberty University. He has always had a love for teaching the game to kids and adults. He is very excited about the direction of the program and can’t wait to see what the future holds for the tennis program here at TPC Piper Glen.
At a young age I knew that I was highly interested in the education of children. Soon after I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood and Elementary I began working with children. I worked in a classroom setting, children’s recreational programs, and children’s church programs and as a licensed Foster Parent for the State of North Carolina.
My teaching philosophy is based on respecting differences, tapping into talents, and sharing my love for learning with my students. I believe we all have something to contribute and I learn so much from my students each day. I have used a multi-sensory, theme based instruction in the classroom and children’s recreation programs, and I fully believe in a consistent, positive and respectful approach to making lasting, meaningful behavior positive changes.
Through the years I held the position as Family Service Director with Siskey Family YMCA for over twelve years. Offering hands on program development for Day Camp, After School, Pre – School, Child Watch and the Indian Guide Programs throughout the Charlotte Metro area.
My classroom teaching experience began in Onslow County North Carolina as a Pre – K Teacher, then onto Union and Mecklenburg County teaching special need classes for over seventeen years. My most recent position of over six years has been here at TPC Piper where I totally enjoy and love very much. I have worked in the Food and Beverage department, with children’s programs, and many more duties around the club.
