In March 2016 I became the women's golf coach at NCAA Division III Transylvania University.
My story begins in Harlan, Kentucky where I was born and raised. I grew up on a small par 34, 9 hole golf course in the mountains of southeastern Kentucky. It was there that I learned this game that I have made my life. I began playing high school golf for Harlan High School when I was in 8th grade. After a junior golf career that included 2 Player of the Year honors from the Southeast Kentucky Junior Golf Tour, I signed to played golf at Cumberland College (now the University of the Cumberlands). Upon graduating college with a business degree, I began employment at Man O’ War Golf and entered the PGA Professional Golf Management Program where I became a Class A, PGA professional in 2010. In 2011 I joined Larry Ward to create the High Performance Golf Academy, now located at Keene Trace Golf Club in Nicholasville, KY. In March 2016 I was named as the women's golf coach at Transylvania University.
