Employee Spotlight: Abigail Roderick – Event Manager

Employee Spotlight: Abigail Roderick – Event Manager

When it comes to your special occasion, you could say Abigail has the magic touch. As a PPHG Event Manager, she credits her early hospitality career with Walt Disney World Resort in shaping the impeccable standard of service she brings to each client across our historic Charleston venues.

Abigail joined the Patrick Properties team in 2014 as Assistant Event Manager, quickly assuming the natural leadership that has since propelled her to a key role within our events team. In early 2018, she moved to Massachusetts but returned to Charleston and her PPHG family in 2019 to once again serve as an Event Manager. Today, her warm enthusiasm and diligence assure our guests they are in the most capable hands.

A Pennsylvania native, Abigail relocated to Charleston with her family in high school before her dreams of a career in wedding planning took her further south to the Rosen College of Hospitality Management at the University of Central Florida – one of the foremost hospitality programs in the country.

Upon earning her Bachelor of Science degree in Event Management, Abigail gained experience in guest relations and restaurant operations. She also led the coordination of weddings and special events for a renowned area resort during her time in Florida. Most recently, Abigail expanded her resume in Massachusetts as an Event Coordinator for Barrett’s Alehouse. Within six months, she was promoted to the Director of Sales & Events, a newly created role.

Abigail has the kindest soul and a giving heart. A talented seamstress, she crochets preemie hats and donates them to Preemies of the Carolinas and is currently sewing face masks to donate to those in healthcare or with a compromised immune system. Her creative goal for 2020 is to make a handkerchief from scratch for all of her brides. So sweet!
