A bit about Catherine Warren…

Catherine continues to set the bar in the highly competitive spa and hospitality industry. The saying goes that you should ask a busy person’s help if you want to have a job done in the best way. If this old adage is true, it’s easy to see why Catherine excels in all aspects of her life, especially at her role as Spa and Leisure Director for Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa. Catherine is busy, but genuine. You feel as if you are the most important living soul in the world when you are speaking with her – whether a guest in her spa, a fellow colleague or charity committee member, or even one of her rescued animals.

Her list of accomplished positions includes IBS Consultants in Richmond Virginia, a Medical Spa Director and Assistant Athletic Director at the Atlanta Athletic Club, and a Spa Manager with Steiner Leisure on cruise ships from 2003 until 2007. In addition, Catherine also worked for the Birmingham News/Birmingham Post Herald in Alabama, earning her way from a Marketing Coordinator to an Advertising Account Executive.
Throughout her career, and as a frequent award winner, she has been repeatedly recognized for excellence in training, revenue growth and management, standard operating procedure creation, membership management, account maintenance, problem solving, and sales staff support.
Despite her demanding schedule, Catherine also teaches Spin and Yoga classes for Eau Spa, and is a certified Spinning and AFAA instructor.
With the charm and elegance of a true Southern Belle, raised in Sumter, South Carolina, Catherine is a devoted wife, mother, and friend whose warmth and generosity is abundant. Outside of her very full days leading Eau Spa, she is actively involved in her community. Catherine has a gigantic love of life and the ability to always see the best in everyone and everything. With a bighearted sense of humor and sense of integrity, Catherine is a true leader through and through.
Her motto: “I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.”
