PROfile

I grew up playing junior golf throughout Alberta and made it onto Team Alberta for a few years. I got my education degree before wanting to pursue my career in golf. I have grown up golfing out at Magrath Golf Club and am looking forward to growing the game of golf further.
I achieved my pro card in August 2020 and later won the Alberta Pro Ladies Championship in September 2020.
I am excited to see what the next year has in store!
