Congratulations to Airess Eatmon, lifestyle director at Windsong Ranch in Prosper, Texas, for claiming the title of Lifestyle Director of the Year at the Nationals, the annual award program presented by the National Sales and Marketing Council, a council of the National Association of Home Builders. Airess was selected from five Silver Award finalists to receive this top honor at The Nationals Gala in Las Vegas on Tuesday.
Airess’ biography in the gala program speaks to her commitment to CCMC’s vision, mission, purpose and commitment to lifestyle programming. “Creating memorable experiences, building the connections between neighbors and helping residents realize there is nowhere else they want to live, that is what it means to be the lifestyle director at Windsong Ranch,” it reads.
Airess joined CCMC in 2015 as lifestyle associate at Windsong Ranch; she was promoted to lifestyle director in November 2017. Her path to being a lifestyle director, however, may be different than most. As an educator for more than nine years, she served as the co-chair for school-sponsored events and an event committee member for local charities, such as Make-A-Wish.
She always had a desire to work in events, but it wasn’t until she moved into a neighborhood with lifestyle programming that her career goals and dreams changed. She learned firsthand how invaluable a lifestyle director can be in a homeowner’s life and made becoming a lifestyle director her career goal.
“We’re extremely proud of Airess for this much-deserved recognition,” said Central Division president Andy Babbitt. “Watching her live her dream and serve the residents of Windsong Ranch has been a pleasure. Her dedication to creating memorable experiences and building connections between residents is a testament to CCMC’s vision, mission and purpose and reinforces the value a strong lifestyle program adds to a community.”
In addition to Airess’ Gold Award win, Windsong Ranch also received Silver Awards for Best Lifestyle Annual Program and Master-Planned Community of the Year.
