Sally Warren

2_sally_warren_585_438_90I was born and raised in Haddonfield, New Jersey, a small town outside of
Philadelphia. As the youngest of four, I had developed a sense of humor and a
strong sense of competition, which probably helped prepare me for my current
job. Upon graduating from Dickinson College, I moved to Hilton Head determined
that I wanted to carve out my own identity. My arrival in 1974 was not seamless.
Hired to work for Sea Pines, I arrived only to find the man that had hired me
had been released in the 70’s lay off’s from Sea Pines. My teaching certificate
was not reciprocal in two states, and South Carolina was one of them so I needed
to scramble for a job before my German father insisted that I come home. I worked as a receptionist for an insurance company and then spent 7 years teaching school at a local private academy. Making a whopping $5,000 a year, I was forced to look for a new career and ended up as a property manager. Property management is what I have done ever since including working with Shipyard since
the 1980’s.

 

I am married to David Warren, Director of Marketing for Haig Point. We have one son, David Jr., who is a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar and recently employed in San Francisco. As a family we love sports, family gatherings and a good laugh. My husband says I am a division one worrier and have kept every piece of paper that ever crossed my desk. So stop in sometime, you might be able to see me behind the stack of files. My goals are to make Shipyard a premier community and to take time to stop and smell the roses along the way.

 

Meredith Simmons

3_meredith_simmons_585_438_90I am from Savannah, but lived many of my formative years in New Brunswick, NJ. I am a graduate of Bennett College, in Greensboro, NC where I majored in English and Business Administration. I worked in Human Resources at Savannah State University right after graduation and also began work on my MBA at Georgia Southern University. Just shy of a year later, I came to work here at Shipyard. Currently, I am working on earning my PhD at Saint Leo University.

 

My son (Noah), my husband (Darryl) and I live in Savannah. Much of our time as a family is consumed with my son’s sports and extracurricular activities. Football is BIG in our house. My son has played in a local league since he was four and we all enjoy being “part of the team”. We are also huge Cowboys and Georgia Bulldogs Fans. We enjoy traveling to just about anywhere and we are regular cruisers. I am an avid reader, I journal daily and like to learn whatever. I care about different places, cultures and religions. I love a good debate, especially when it comes to politics. I am a licensed Realtor, but I plan to stay inactive for the time being. In short, I have a very busy life but I try to enjoy every single minute of it.

 

Brian Pettersen

4_brian_pettersen_585_438_90I was raised in Connecticut and was one of 3 children. My parents reside in Florida. I have one son and 5 stepchildren that reside all over the states. Upon graduating from high school, I joined the Air Force and then moved back to Connecticut and served on the Connecticut State Police. After I divorced I moved to Atlanta GA. After my wife Susan passed, my son moved to Hilton Head from California to live with me. I retired from a little company called Coca-Cola and decided to move to Hilton Head Island. We currently live in Ashton Cove, and as I say working at Shipyard is my retirement job. I love to golf, jog on my Nordtrac, antique hunting (primarily Limoge China) dancing, skiing and also
traveling.
