Just as our waterpark continues to grow each day, so does our team! American Resort Management, LLC is proud to bring Lauren Colvin on-board as the Director of Corporate Sales!
Lauren is our main point of contact for Corporate Sales, which will entail building professional contacts and the development of corporate business with park buy-outs, company events and meetings, the corporate VIP club, consignment tickets, and anything involving companies and businesses!
Lauren received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Business from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, where she studied Marketing and Entrepreneurship. She got her start with AAA as a Direct Sales Agent, then gained an immense amount of customer service and management experience with Enterprise Rent-A-Car, followed by Topgolf in Dallas, Scottsdale, Arizona, and Oklahoma City, where she oversaw the sales teams and the implementation of sales and marketing plans.
In her spare time, she enjoys spoiling her fur children, Dolce and Lolo, shopping until she can’t shop anymore, and taking tropical vacations with family and friends.
We asked Lauren several questions to get to know her a little more. We hope you enjoy reading her responses below:
Choose a movie title for the story of your life.
National Lampoon’s Vacation – not because my life is always a vacation, although I wish! It’s more so because you never know what life will throw at you and what obstacles you will need to overcome. Mine has always been a wild and adventurous ride full of amazing stories!
At which store would you like to max-out your credit card?
That’s a tough one. I LOVE Express and my entire wardrobe is practically from there. And I LOVE shoes and I LOVE Nordstrom’s shoe department. But I LOVE Sephora too. Oh and I LOVE cute furniture stores like Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel, Z Gallery, and West Elm. And I LOVE sunglasses too, so any pretty sunglass store. How many credit cards can I max out?
Which storybook/cartoon character is someone that you would marry?
Puddles the Prairie Dog
What was your favorite TV show when growing up?
Hey Dude. In fact, one year for Halloween I was Miss Rodeo USA because I wanted to live on a dude ranch.
What was your favorite toy as a child?
How pairs of shoes are in your closet?
One million! Just kidding, but it’s probably close.
What is the oldest thing in your refrigerator?
My refrigerator is usually empty 🙁 But I’m awesome at the drive-thru.
What is the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time?
Organize my closet by color and season. I’m weird like that.
What is your favorite cereal?
I don’t like any food in the breakfast category – so I don’t like cereal! I would rather wake up and eat gushers and tootsie rolls. 😊
What are you most looking forward to as part of the Executive Team at Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark?
I’m super excited to be a part of an amazing team full of amazing people! I’m looking forward to building an EPIC culture in the waterpark and within our Associates, as well as bringing a whole new level of FUN to the community! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I cannot wait to see what we will create! It will surely by an EPIC RIDE!
