Our Valuable Team Members
Karen realized that she had found a home at Whitehead Manor when she saw the value placed on providing that sincere southern hospitality and warmth in a truly unique and beautiful natural environment.
Karen credits the event management experience at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center and customer relations and retail management positions with the US Postal service with enhancing the skills that allow her to orchestrate successful events and sales.
Karen enjoys traveling and spending time with family and friends.
Ashton’s favorite part of the wedding day is when couples decide to have a “first look” and get to spend a moment alone soaking in that special moment with each other without anyone around.
Ashton is a Virginia Tech alumni, where she played softball, and received both her undergraduate and Master’s degree.
Ashton enjoys concerts, hiking, traveling with friends, her mom’s home cooking, Virginia Tech football games and spending time with her 3-year-old Pit bull mix named Annie. She also admits that her day is not complete without an iced latte in her hand!
Majoring in Hospitality Management, she received her two-year degree from Miami Dade College while on a full scholarship to play softball. She then transferred the University of South Carolina, Upstate where she continued her softball career and received her bachelor’s degree in 2015. With her passion in event planning and strong connection with our team members, we were lucky to announce that Paris officially joined our staff that summer.
Paris’ favorite part of the wedding day is getting to be with the bride and her father moments before she walks down the aisle to marry the love of her life!
Paris enjoys going to her family cabin in Georgia, snow skiing, attending sporting events (Go Eagles!), trying new margarita recipes, and spending time with her 8-month old lab mix Liliana Rose. She is also not afraid to admit she loves Justin Bieber.
