Golf has been my life ever since I began playing at the age of 7. My playing career started at a young age and continued through college. A devastating wrist injury during college opened my eyes to a true love of the game. I realized my desire to grow the game of golf and became a golf professional rather than a professional golfer. I still enjoy playing competitively and play in local LPGA and PGA club professional tournaments, when time allows.

I am fortunate to have been a part of all aspects of the golf business. From my experience, I have come to realize that teaching the game of golf is where my heart is. Being a person who likes to excel, I find myself constantly seeking ways to better myself as an instructor. If I am away from the lesson tee, I am probably attending golf seminars across the country.

I currently hold a Class A certification with both the PGA and the LPGA and a certification with TPI (the Titleist Performance Institute). I also hold a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology, with a minor in International Business. I have known for a long time that someday I would find a way to combine my two loves: golf and fitness. Currently, I have been able to create instruction programs that encompass TPI training and evaluation programs.

Wanderlust, as some may call it, brings me wherever my pocketbook can afford. As a golf instructor, I have taken my love for travel to the next level. I organize golf trips around the world.

I pride myself on being a patient, positive and creative instructor that truly cares about each individual student. My personal mission statement is to never stop learning through the means of reading, watching top professionals teach in the industry, writing articles and playing. I will strive to make a difference in each student’s life one article, one book, and one day at a time.

 

I look forward to seeing you on the lesson tee at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Florida!
