Assistant General Manager & Director of Membership & Marketing
Christen was born and raised in small-town Vermont where she attended the University in Vermont and had a career in banking until 2008, when she met her husband, John, and they made the decision to travel. They spent three years travelling between Vermont, Ohio and California working at high-end resorts in both sales and food and beverage – most notably Evergreen Lodge in Yosemite, California, and the Basin Harbor Club on the shores of Lake Champlain, Vermont.
In 2011 they decided to settle down in Troy, Ohio, where John was born and raised. There Christen managed an upscale Italian restaurant for the longest running restaurant family in the Dayton, Ohio, area, while pursuing a business management degree in what she is most passionate about – Hospitality.
In 2015, Christen was lucky to become a part of the Troon family, when she made the move to Piqua Country Club as their Membership & Marketing Director, then Food & Beverage Director and ending her tenure there as the club General Manager, until transferring with Troon to Franklin, Tennessee and Westhaven Golf Club.
