After graduating from Ferris State University’s PGM program in 1994, I obtained my Class A PGA of America membership in 1996. As a member of the Michigan PGA Section, I worked as a Club Professional at Lochmoor Club in Grosse Pointe as well as the Director of Golf at Forest Dunes Golf Club in Roscommon. I was the Head Golf Coach for the Grosse Pointe North Girl’s Varsity Golf Team for four years and was awarded MAC Conference Coach of the Year all four years. I also competed as a professional on several mini-tours from 1998 – 2004. Following my years playing on tours I decided to teach full time and accepted the position of Lead Golf Instructor at the International Junior Golf Academy in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. I had the pleasure of becoming certified with both Hank Haney and Gary Gilchrist while at the IJGA. Many of my students at the IJGA went on to obtain full college golf scholarships at Division I Universities throughout the country. I was then able to train under Jim McLean as the Golf School Coordinator/Instructor at his flagship golf school at Trump National Doral Resort in Miami, Florida. I have been very fortunate to have been able to learn from several of the top instructors in the world throughout my career and pride myself on combining those fundamentals in my teaching philosophy today.
