Great Harbor Yacht Club is pleased to announce that after an extensive search, Sarah Storie has been hired as the Event Director. Sarah will oversee all private events, from intimate dinners to fairytale weddings and ensure every event is executed to exceed member and guest expectations.
Sarah, a native of Worcester, Massachusetts, is no stranger to Nantucket. She started working on the island in 2011 while attending the University of Massachusetts Amherst’s Isenberg School of Business where she received her degree in Hospitality Tourism Management. For three summers she worked at one of the private clubs on island and advanced from lunch server to Assistant Events Coordinator.
Upon graduation, she spent a year and a half completing a Manager in Training program at Mirasol Country Club in Palm Beach County, FL. In 2016 she moved to Nantucket year-round to accept a position as the Catering Director at Nantucket’s Island Kitchen and discovered her passion for all aspects of event management. Sarah built the Island Kitchen private event business from the ground up exceeding all financial and growth projections. She also worked closely with the Island Kitchen owner and the management team that oversaw the build out of the expanded facility and very successful ice cream counter.
Sarah has spent the last 6 months working in Florida for a technology platform startup. The founder has a strong computer coding and technology background while Sarah’s strength is her strong understanding of restaurants and hospitality. The two worked closely to design a tasked based system meant to organize and store essential operational information for businesses.
“Christian and I are so pleased that Sarah has chosen to join the team at GHYC as the next step in her career”, said Stephen Creese, General Manager.
Sarah Storie began working with outgoing Event Director Courtney Mackey and Social Event Manager Lindsay Daley on April 1st to ensure a seamless transition for the many Member and nonprofit events already on the books. Sarah’s eye for detail and creativity will enhance any event and we encourage Members to consider GHYC when planning their next Nantucket event, of any scale.
