My Story

My Story...

Well, where do I start?!?  I was born in BC and lived there for about one year before my parents moved to Edmonton, Alberta where I lived for a few years.  I spent most of my childhood just north of Toronto, Ontario in a town called Uxbridge.  I played many sports and was the oldest child in a family with 5 children.  I stumbled upon golf around the age of 12 and at this point I was hooked!  I would play golf from sunrise to sunset every day.  I mean it when I say every day!  I improved rapidly and won the Junior Club Championship for 3 years in a row at Foxbridge Golf Course in Uxbridge, Ontario.  I would read every golf magazine in publication and memorized everything imaginable.  

I continued to compete in many junior events across the province and won numerous junior club championships, local tournaments and my highlight was the Canadian Junior Golf Association Tour Championship in 1996.  The life lessons I learned as a junior golfer are invaluable.  The people I met and the lessons I learned from them go a long way.  I also played College Golf at Durham College in Oshawa, Ontario where I studied Professional Golf Management - Business Administration.  I also attended Humber College and completed my studies at Grant MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta.

I decided to join the PGA of Canada in 2002 and I worked hard on my golf game all summer with the goal of winning the qualifying tournament.  I achieved my goal by shooting scores of 68 and 66 for a total of 10 under par and won the tournament!  Most recently I won the 2016 Beach Grove Golf Club Pro-Am with a score of 68 and the 2017 Srixon PGA of BC Tour event at Tsawwassen Springs Golf Club with a score of 67.  The sense of accomplishment that one feels when they set a goal for themselves and put everything that they have towards achieving it is another one of life's lessons that I learned from golf.

I've also been very fortunate to work at some of the world's greatest golf courses on their professional staff such as St. George's Golf and Country Club in Toronto, Ontario for 3 years where we hosted the 2010 RBC Canadian Open PGA Tour event, Jasper Park Lodge Golf Club in Jasper, Alberta for 2 years, Edmonton Petroleum Golf and Country Club and a couple of golf courses in Vancouver, BC for 8 years before moving back to Alberta where my family resides.

I also have a 2 year old daughter and 2 labradoodles and in my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking and mountain biking in the mountains with my dogs and playing in local PGA tournaments!

I am passionate about teaching all levels of golfers and I look forward to connecting with you!
