“I grew up on the golf course, with my father and grandfather being local scratch golfers and club champions throughout the state of PA. My first job was the cart attendant when I turned 16, then onto the beverage cart girl and working as a bartender in the lounge. When I turned 18, I went off to college at West Virginia University and received my BS in agronomy, with a specialty in turfgrass and soil science. I spent my summers interning under a course superintendent, mowing greens, fairways, and approaches, placing cups, fertilizing, and identifying and treating varying plant diseases. So that being said, somehow I landed here in Tampa Bay in 2002 and went into real estate, but never losing my passion for the landscape architecture and the traditions of the sport itself.”
