Erin Grossman

Erin has been called a "cool" person.  Perhaps that's because she was born and grew up in Anchorage, Alaska. 
After high school she spent a year at the University of Alaska Anchorage, then moved to Phoenix.  Erin graduated from Arizona State University, magna cum laude, with a B.A. degree in Politics.  (Erin explains that at most other colleges they call it Political Science.)   She worked her way through college, but found time to be active in the Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance. 
She lived in San Francisco for six years, working at the oldest wholesale coffee roastery in San Francisco. She had valuable experiences but, “was not yet on a career track”.   She was a frequent visitor to her sister’s home in the Palm Springs area, and in 2010 moved to the Coachella Valley and got interested in club and resort management.  She started as a fitness coordinator at Trilogy and worked there for six years in a variety of positions, working her way up to Association Manager.  She has served as Assistant General Manager at Indian Ridge for the last couple years.  Her many duties there included work on the club’s web site and newsletter.
Erin lives in La Quinta now, and “loves my two dogs; Kirby and Suki”.   Music is an important part of her life.  She has a band, called Hag, sings and is learning bass guitar.  She likes to read, mainly fiction and mysteries.  She has always been a tennis fan and has played the game herself, hoping to play more in the days ahead. Hiking is another activity, and she enjoys and wants to get better at pickleball.   Pro football?  Yup she likes to watch, and the Oakland Raiders are her favorite team.
Why the move to Palm Desert Tennis Club?  Erin has her CMCA (Certified Manager of Community Associations) credential and feels that now is the time to move up to her first job as a Club General Manager.   “It is a real privilege to work here.  And I won’t try to fix what’s not broken. But I will try to improve what can be improved.”
