Association Team Changes

Lifestyle Director Introduction
We are excited to introduce Haiven Whitley as your first lifestyle director for the Carnes Crossroads community under the new direction of Freehold Communities. She will begin training for her role on Monday, March 21st offsite and will start officially creating unique experiences after her first two weeks of CCMC onboarding on April 4th.

What does lifestyle mean for Carnes Crossroads?
In her new role, Haiven will focus on increasing opportunities for resident engagement through events, programs, and community communications, cultivating volunteers, and establishing strategic partnerships to benefit the residents. Living in a Freehold Community is based on a foundation of five vital pillars, engagement, connectivity, healthy living, stewardship, and a design-forward philosophy. Her love of Lowcountry living and background in service, education, planning, and marketing events make her an excellent fit for this position.

Be sure to say hello to Haiven as she’s out and about at upcoming community events and meetings. We look forward to hosting a “meet the team” event once we have identified your next community manager.
