Whitney Farmer was quite literally the first person from Compass Resorts at The Palms of Destin Resort & Conference Center as guest services manager when we first went on-site there in January 2019. Since then, she has spearheaded the positive development of our Palms properties. As rental manager, she marks the growth of new properties, and those undergoing "rental property rehab," as her favorite parts of the job. She also loves that every day is different and she's always learning something new; a role she describes as a juggling act that never ends.
Whitney grew up in Niceville, but left for college in Orlando at the University of Central Florida. There she explored her dream job of animal training, specifically for movies, before she moved back to the Destin area to be closer to family--and the beach! Her proudest moment with the company was being part of the initial Compass team at Silver Shells Resort & Spa and The Palms on-site offices.

How do you enjoy your free time? "I spend the majority of my free time outdoors with my son. We love going swimming and playing on the beach, riding bikes, and playing baseball in the front yard. I have also recently developed an extensive background in all things Roblox and Fortnite."
