Born and raised in East Tennessee, Kelsey found a passion for service very early in life. She began her hospitality career serving and bartending in high-volume restaurants. During that time, a professor introduced her to the world of private club management and mentorship. She successfully completed a summer internship with the Coral Bay Club where she fell in love with the job, people and overall atmosphere of private clubs. Following this, Kelsey also completed a second hospitality internship as a Food & Beverage Supervisor at the Sea Pines Resort in Hilton Head while commuting to finish her degree. She graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Hospitality Management. Kelsey is extremely excited to provide above-and-beyond service and dining experiences to the members and guests of The Peninsula Club. In her free time, Kelsey enjoys cooking, exploring, and spending time in the mountains with her family, friends, and dogs.
