I started working in the golf business as a cart/range attendant at a private club in Alexandria, La in 1995. Upon graduating high school in '97 I had been promoted to shop assistant and stayed in that position as I worked toward a college degree, until approx. 2002 after achieving an Associate's Degree upon completion of Pre-Pharmacy ciriculum.I then decided to "test the waters" of a career as a Golf Professional and moved to Slidell,La to Pinewood CC to apprentice under future hall of fame pro-James Lietz--. After working there for a year , I went back to college to ultimately graduate with a Bachelor's Degree, and left the business for several years. January 7th 2011, I could no longer deny my passion for this business and took the assistant position at Links on the Bayou G.C..
