I grew up in country Victoria where sport was expected to be played. I started playing golf with my grandparents (who were golf tragics) at the age of 8 at a very small club, Merrigum. My brother and I were the only juniors at the club for a long time and we were treated like everyone’s children or grandchildren. We played as often as we could. I fell in love with the game when I started to travel as part of the Victorian team.
I was lucky enough to attend the Australian Institute of Sport for 3 years and learnt a lot about the game and myself. I went to Oklahoma State University for a year before realising I didn’t want to study but play golf professionally. I turned professional in 2004 after obtaining my Ladies European Tour card on my first attempt. I played the LET for 6 years before injury sent me into early retirement.
My passion for golf couldn’t be lost so I became a teaching professional in 2010. Since then I have been a Club Professional at Tocumwal, Wollongong, Horsham and Huntingdale. I was a teaching professional at Albert Park driving range where I learnt a lot about club fitting and TrackMan. Recently I left the Australian Golf Service Centre at Sandringham Golf Links. I have been privileged enough to travel the world playing golf and I really enjoy imparting what I have learned over the years to others.
