PROfile

Born and raised in Saskatchewan, I moved to Cochrane, Alberta when I was 9 years old. That same year, I became part of the local 9 hole golf course and began to participate heavily in the junior program, I truly never looked back. Once I graduated High School I instantly took a job in the golf industry. After some thought, I decided to go to Lethbridge College for the Professional Golf Management program. There, my knowledge of the game took to new heights when I was able to not only work on my game and teaching abilities, but work on them with other talented players, coaches and teachers along the way. My most proud accomplishment out of Lethbridge College would certainly be competing with the golf team and qualifying for Nationals in PEI.  

After two years at Lethbridge College I chose to switch education paths and attend the University in Lethbridge. There, I was able to successfully complete a Bachelor’s Degree in Management. While at the University of Lethbridge I was also able to compete on the golf team for 3 years. Getting to see the competitive side of golf at both schools certainly taught me a lot about the game. Since joining the PGA of Canada in 2013 I have met a ton of great people and have created some great memories within the golf industry. I am a very proud member PGA of Canada and I could not be more excited to leave my mark on the game of golf.
