Having been with Town Point Club since 1999, my background in the hospitality industry spans 20 years—including serving as manager for several fine dining establishments, Director of Food and Beverage at Lake Lanier Islands Resort and Vice President of Food and Beverage at Pinehurst Resort. 

I attended the University of Georgia and acquired a Masters in Business Administration at the Georgia Southern University as well. Combining my educational and professional experiences, I became part of the ClubCorp family in 1999 and have enjoyed every moment since. 

I spend my time outside of work watching the Bulldogs play and spending quality time with my son. 

Looking forward, I anticipate providing an environment that all our Members and their guests will enjoy on each visit. If you have any questions or concerns of any kind, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Since 2002, when I first joined ClubCorp, I have been delighted to serve as a Private Event Director in our Golf and Country Club Division and a Regional Sales and Membership Director in our Business and Sports Club Division.  Prior to joining the ClubCorp Family, I spent 14 years in the Hospitality industry at various properties and in various capacities. 

After graduating from Virginia Tech and working several years for the University, I decided the Hampton Roads area and family was where I wanted to be permanently located, resulting in me joining ClubCorp.  I have two fabulous children, Madison and Cameron, and absolutely love being involved in all their extracurricular activities.  With four generations of family living locally in Chesapeake, I can’t help but be active with them all!

As your Membership Director, my role has been to exercise my strengths in membership management and business development – with end goals to grow, sustain and improve our membership.  It is very important to me that we continue to strive towards a diverse and active Club Membership to keep our Club healthy.  Via an ability to quickly understand the nature of one’s business, I’m driven to help others capture, network and execute new opportunities in clear, concise and understandable terms. 

Should you have questions regarding your Member benefits or know someone interested in becoming a Member, please do not hesitate to contact me personally. This is your Home Away From Home!
