As graduate of Methodist University PGM Program (93) and with over 15 years experience as a PGA Member  I have focused my skill sets to be an expert in the following areas of the business:  

  • Instruction
  • General Management

As a native Philadelphian I am privileged to have been the Director of Instruction and Director of Golf at Multiple Facilities in the Delaware Valley. In 2008 I was called to start up The First Tee of Greater Philadelphia's Program here at Walnut Lane Golf Course. Starting from a base line of zero I have grown the program to reach 1200 students annually. In conjunction with this I completed the requirements to be a Certified First Tee Coach. Having taught thousands of students, one highlight has been my interaction with blind golfers and the development of a program for teaching blind golfers. Communication and listening skills are key assets in my success as an instructor and leader.  In line with these initiatives I am proud to be the team leader for a wonderful staff at Walnut Lane Golf Course.

Stop by Walnut Lane and experience the fun!
