Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, I am a first-generation golfer that was a successful junior competitor and competed at the college level until it was cut short by a back injury. I graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a bachelor’s degree in Finance and a strong desire to continue to pursue my passion for golf through teaching. I transitioned from competition to teaching in 2012 when I started to work closely as a student and mentee of #2 Golf Digest Best Teacher in America Chris Como.
From 2015-2019 I studied under Chris, becoming his first certified instructor, immersing myself in a philosophy of holistic golf instruction, focusing on biomechanics, golf technology, exercise physiology, injury prevention, course strategy, nutrition, wellness, and the psychology of optimal performance. During that time, I worked at both Gleneagles Country Club and Dallas National Golf Club and spent time traveling through the numerous events of the PGA Tour.
In 2019, I had the opportunity to move to New York City to join the team at one of the leading golf instruction facilities in Manhattan, Golf & Body NYC, to bring my holistic approach and coaching to its members. I then had the opportunity to help launch the golf facilities and instruction offerings at NEXUS Golf New York, a preeminent private club in lower Manhattan. I continue in my role as Director of Golf at NEXUS, in addition to my private golf instruction offerings to my diverse and sophisticated client base.
