I have been very fortunate in my career to have a few great mentors.

Two of my earliest were Mitch Joannes and Don Hill, both PGA Members. They worked at two completely different clubs but treated everyone like they were their friend and not a member or a customer. I also watched how well they talked to the “kids” that were there in the Junior Programs and how they showed tremendous care for us. It made my decision very easy on becoming a PGA Member.

Since getting into the PGA I have had a few others that have been great leaders and even better friends of mine. They are Rob Muranyi, Bill Graham, Paul LoCicero and Jim Richerson, they have shown me that anything is possible if you strive for it. I try to do my best everyday to be a mentor for all.
