Meet The Team

Adrienne Blomgren, General Manager

If you have ever been to the Silver Falls Lodge & Conference Center, chances are you have had a friendly hello from this amazing woman. Adrienne is our General Manager at the Conference Center and the original follower of the “5 C’s”! (Days are made better with Coffee, Chocolate, Cheese, Caramel & Coconut) With an extensive knowledge of the park and surrounding area, it is not unusual to see our fearless leader helping out all over the property and speaking with our guests with a continual smile on her face and a cup of coffee in her hand.

“Every day is an adventure when your office is in the woods!”

Jim Johnson, Chef

Our Chef Jim works closely with our team to help serve up spectacular culinary treats. When you walk in our kitchen at the falls, Jim always has a friendly hello and fun story to tell about the day.

Brooke Gerken, Wedding Sales Manager


Brooke joins our team with a determined spirit and a fresh enthusiasm for hosting weddings. She believes that getting outdoors isn’t simply an activity, it’s a lifestyle that should be accessible for all of humankind. She has made it her lifelong pursuit to serve and connect with communities, by creating exceptional outdoor experiences and being a host in all aspects. Brooke thrives on merriment, creative expression, and practicing yoga—and will always be down for a spontaneous road-trip with her dogs.

“This is the power of gathering: it inspires us, delightfully– to be more joyful, more hopeful, more thoughtful. In a word, more alive.”

-Alice Waters

A loving grandma and breast cancer survivor, Christy is a vital piece to our team.
