Profile

I grew up in Kyabram 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.

When I started to think that I would like to play professional at the age of 16 my grandmother would break me out of school on a Wednesday to go play golf with her. We had the best time and my teenage years are some of the best memories of my golfing career with my grandparents. I fell in love with the game when I started to travel as part of the Victorian team at the age of 14. I was lucky enough to attend the Australian Institute of Sport for 3 years after finishing high school, 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 have been privileged enough to travel the world playing golf and I really enjoy imparting what I have learned over the years to others.
