Can you briefly describe your professional background and how it relates to your responsibilities at Meadowbrook today? I grew up in the catering/party rental industry, with my family and have 18 years’ experience in the industry. I have done everything from washing dishes, setting up tents, cooking the food and finally being the executive in charge of the event. All of my professional experiences relate directly to managing the food and beverage for the golfers to being the executive in charge of wedding receptions and special events at Meadowbrook at Clayton, including everything from event planning to the conclusion of the event.
Why is Meadowbrook such a great facility for the community? It gives all the local golfers something to do, especially with all of the recent course closures in the area. It also is a great fit for the community events as well! Labor Day, Easter Egg Hunt, Breakfast with Santa and the Costume and Carvings event. Local community members have utilized this facility for graduation parties, baby showers, birthdays, weddings, corporate parties and other social gatherings. Clayton residents also receive 10% discount at the event facility.
What’s your favorite thing/part of Meadowbrook that people may not know about? My favorite part of Meadowbrook is the community center aspect. People may not realize that most communities do not have a location that can host community events, stimulate the local economy, boost property values, give locals somewhere to golf and be utilized for social events, but Meadowbrook at Clayton offers that to everyone in the Northmont community and surrounding region as well.
Is there something you wish people knew about Meadowbrook? I wish people knew we were here and not still a private club! We’re open to the entire public and operate as a public facility. I still get people that say, “I didn’t know you were here” or that “I didn’t know you were open to the public.” We’re here for everyone and look forward to helping everyone with whatever type of function they’d like to hold here.
What do you like to do when you’re not at Meadowbrook working? When I’m not working at Meadowbrook at Clayton, I enjoy relaxing and staying physically active.
