Growing up outside of Buffalo, New York, I was inspired by PGA Master Professional Steve Carney to make golf a career and enter the PGA PGM program at Methodist University. Steve Carney taught me that there are many ways in the golf business to be creative and make money. I liked that the industry had a lot of different avenues and ways to influence the game.
Picking golf as a career was easy because I never felt like I was going to work when going to a golf course. I loved the idea of wearing many hats and being involved with people on a day to day basis to enhance the golf experience. I loved that my career would allow me to play golf competitively and also have the opportunity to help others with their golf games through instruction.
I’m thankful every day that my mom took me to Saturday junior clinics to learn the game and meet Steve Carney.
