I was born and raised in Wawa Ontario for the first 18 years of my life. In Wawa I worked 6 years on the Greens and Grounds team which was my first taste working in the golf industry. I went to college at Georgian College, where I was in the second graduating class of the Bachelor of Applied Business- Golf Management program in 2013. During College I had the experience of working at Crimson Ridge Golf Course for a year, and then at the National Golf Club of Canada for 3 years. This is where I became a professional and found my passion for teaching golf. Also, during this time I worked a winter for The Golf Lab where I was surrounded by even more great teaching professionals and lots of tech! I moved on to work at Miskanaw Golf Course in Fort McMurray Alberta from 2016-2020. Currently, I am the Director of Instruction at Fort McMurray Golf Club.
