My father (a +2 handicap that was self taught at the age of 30), got me started with golf at the age of 12.  He was adamant that I learned correctly, so I attended clinics, lessons and golf schools including the very 1st offered junior camp at the Innisbrook Resort at the age of 13.  I played in high school but then went on to Tampa College that didn't offer sports.  Many years later, there was an opportunity to pursue a career in golf at Innisbrook.  I started in the golf shop in 1987, joined the PGA and the LPGA Teaching & Coaching Division and continued with the PGA receiving my Class A Membership in 2003.  I was exposed to some of the best instructors at the 1990 -- PGA Teaching & Coaching Summit in Nashville, Tenn.  Peter Kostis, Dr. Fran Pirozzolo, Jim Harty, Conrad Rehling, Drew Pierson, Don Kotnik and Hubby Habjan formed the team of key presenters as the Summit advanced its focus on applying teaching techniques to students of all abilities.  I acquired a passion for the fitness element to golf and really enjoyed attending the Titleist Performance Institute Summit and Golf Athlete.  I've conducted ladies golf schools in Michigan for the last 16 years and in Connecticut for the last 6 years.  I'm a Titleist staff member and a certified Titleist club fitter.  I co-authored the book "Putt for Dough", as well as written various articles / tips including Washington times and video tips for egolftips.  Golf for Women magazine rated me TOP 50 Female Golf Instructors in 2001 and the Innisbrook golf school has received many awards including "Best in the South", "Top 25 golf schools by Golf Magazine" and "BEST Instruction" by Zagats.  In August of 2009, I was promoted to the Director of Instruction at the Innisbrook Golf & Spa Resort.  Other than golf, I enjoy cooking, fishing, travel, flying (received my pilots license in 2008), scuba and most water sports.
