Meet the Team

Cathie Ransom


For over 22 years, Los Willows has been my passion. I like to think that we are in the “happy” business making dreams come true at each and every celebration. If there are compliments that we hear over and over again, they are, “This place is magical” My family and I can’t take all the credit since our natural surroundings and pristine spring-fed lake is definitely the cornerstone to this magnificent place. What I can say is we at Los Willows host only one celebration at a time so the entire focus is on you and your special moment, where memories last forever. We invite you to visit Los Willows and experience the “magic” for yourselves. You will not be disappointed!

Lynne Martucci

Director of Operations

I wear many hats because that is how it is in this special industry. I have been working in Food & Beverage Service for over thirty years and with that experience I truly know food, from preparation to presentation and I know just about everything you need to know about hosting a successful bar. I will be the person you see when it’s time to have your menu tasting. You will also see me involved with our banquet staff ensuring everything goes according to plan.

That is where I come in, I work closely with the Wedding Planner to make sure your big day is stress-free and everything you imagined.

I’ll make your dream day come to life while creating a one-of-a-kind event that you and your guests will remember for a lifetime.

Liza Isacsson

Hello, my name is Liza Isacsson and I am the senior wedding sales specialist here at Los Willows. I am proud to say that I have had the honor of producing unique and successful weddings for brides and grooms for over 35 years.

Samantha Goble

Administrative Assistant

I’m the one you will most likely talk to on the phone if you call the office, greet you when you come in for a meeting or tour and help behind the scenes on your wedding day! I do a little of everything in the office from directing calls, answering questions, scheduling tours and meetings to managing the social media platforms for Los Willows and Paradise Falls (our sister property) to assisting the coordinator and vendors on wedding days. Newly graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Hospitality Management with a Concentration in Event and Meeting Management, I have always loved events and weddings and can’t wait to help you with your big day. Just like the other girls in the office I have an excitement and passion and love for all things weddings and I am here to help and make sure your day is picture perfect!

Brandy and Buffy

Branch Managers

You may run into these two on non-wedding days. Brandy’s favorite thing to do is retrieve sticks or in some cases, branches. Buffy prefers to meet and greet and hang out with whoever has a treat.

Rachel Stillwell


I keep the office on a steady course. You may never meet me in person but I too, am passionate about making sure your wedding goes smooth.
