RYG™ Certified Fitting Professional

I was born in Washington DC and raised just a few miles away in Falls Church, VA. I first picked up a club when I was about 15. The addiction, as with most who love this game, set in quickly. The timing was perfect as I had taken my first job at a used sporting goods store around that same time. I quickly realized that I was only working to support my new found obsession with golf!!

I attended the University of Arizona and received a degree in Communications. Shortly after graduating from U of A, I attended the Professional Golfers Career College in Temecula, CA. Golf was definitely my passion, and I wanted to pursue a career around something I loved. Along with going to the Career college, I also took a job with Mitsubishi Rayon Graphite Shafts (now Mitsubishi Chemical). Working on everything from sales to product development, I was very fortunate to receive wide range of experience. My last two years with Mitsubishi, I travelled all over the country as a tour representative performing fittings and providing technical advice the tour professionals when needed. All of that exposure to atmosphere of the professional tour and the top players in the world made me eager to take my own shot at playing full time. I tried my hand at the mini tour circuit and local Monday qualifiers with minimal success, but had a blast doing it and wouldn’t trade that experience for anything.

I absolutely love golf! It is an incredible passion for me, but more than anything I have learned through all of my experiences that I truly love golf equipment, and seeing people get better at this wonderful game. I pride myself on the level of care and commitment I make to clients as well as the thoroughness with which I perform my fittings. I feel very fortunate to be here at RedTail where they share my passion and commitment to providing the highest level of customer service and helping golfers improve their games. I was attracted to RedTail because of their approach to fitting and instruction. For all of the facilities that claim to “grow the game”, RedTail is one of the few at which I see it actually occur on a daily basis. I hope you will allow me the opportunity to improve your game.

I am also blessed with a beautiful family so when I am not helping golfers improve their games, I love to spend time with my partner Lizz, and my daughter, Luna. They are my world!!
