Katie Brinkman – Director of Sales & Marketing
Katie graduated from Bloomsburg University in the spring of 2002. While attending Bloomsburg, Katie had the unique opportunity to spend a semester working as a special events intern at the United States Embassy in London. This experience was the catalyst leading to a successful career in the hospitality and events industry. After graduation, Katie quickly left rural PA for the big city spending the majority of her time in Philadelphia working for Global Events Partners; Philadelphia’s premier Destination Management Company.
While she enjoyed much success in her career with GEP Philly, Katie always felt she belonged elsewhere. Not necessarily professionally, but personally. Katie began visiting various cities throughout the US and quickly fell in love with Austin, TX.
Once in Austin, Katie immersed herself in the Austin hospitality industry while selling advertising for the Austin Convention & Visitors Bureau, assisting with the growth of a small marketing and events firm, working as the National Sales Manager for AlliedPRA Austin and working as the Director of Catering and Conference Services at Lakeway Resort & Spa on Lake Travis. Most recently, Katie was the Senior Program Manager for CLINK! Katie is excited to be back in the hotel world and back on Lake Travis; close to home.
Katie and her husband Jeff, who is a Private Pilot in the Austin/Lakeway area, have two little girls, Caroline & Sadie.
