Staff Profile
     Meet Ann, Silver Willow's newest staff member

1) How long have you worked at Silver Willow. My first day at Silver willow was a great day, March 12 2015, my son's birthday!

2) What is your role at the club? My role is to keep Gene, my side kick, under control! No, I answer the phone, take bookings, ensure guests are signed in and have what they need to enjoy a round of sporting clays. I try not to forget anything but I am sure I do! I am currently working on updating all membership information so you may be asked for your PAL or PAL expiry or to sign your membership card. My husband is coaching me on the different shells, loads, etc so I am better able to have an intelligent conversation with you!

3) What do you like best about working at SW?  I am learning lots and so enjoy what I am doing and who I am working with! Everyone here is amazing! I felt welcomed from the moment I started! I would have to say my favorite thing about working here is the fact that it doesn't feel well as the people I get to interact with and have fun with on a daily basis!

4) One thing on my bucket list? Hmmm, first on my bucket list would be to go back to Kauai. It is such a beautiful island, laid back, amazing scenery, whale watching and terrific food! Next thing would be to learn to shoot better than my husband and son!
