The Resort at Pelican Hill
In 2016, Whitney joined The Resort at Pelican Hill as Group Sales Manager. She oversees the southwest market, specializing in groups from 10-250 room nights. Located in Newport Coast, CA, The Resort at Pelican Hill is a Forbes Five-Star, AAA Five-Diamond destination that Whitney considers to be the highlight of her professional career.
Whitney first moved to California in pursuit of breaking into the wedding industry, serving as Director of Catering Sales for Wedgewood Wedding & Banquets and assisting with talent acquisition. Additionally, she helped create a training program for all catering sales hires.
Originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma, Whitney earned her Bachelor’s Degree from Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration. After graduation, she briefly returned to Oklahoma to begin her sales career heading Dave & Buster’s catering sales team.
I am delighted to join SITE Texas to get further involved in our community, even from California. I look forward to meeting other like-minded professionals and working together on future projects. Texas is a wonderful state that’s seen impressive growth, and I’m excited to watch SITE Texas follow suit.
