Growing up in Tipp City, Ohio was truly idyllic, as it was within this wonderful community that my profound passion for golf first took root, ultimately propelling me into college to pursue Professional Golf Management, and subsequently launching a nearly three-decade-long career with Marriott Hotels. Throughout this journey, I had the privilege of assuming leadership roles in remarkable locations such as Lake of the Ozarks, MO, Long Island, NY, Ipswich, MA, Atlantic City, NJ, and Scottsdale, AZ. Among my accomplishments, I steered two golf course renovation projects, the initial being at Seaview in Atlantic City – a course designed by the legendary Donald Ross which played host to the LPGA ShopRite Classic. Another notable endeavor was the transformative $10 million renovation of the JW Marriott Camelback Golf Club, culminating in us securing the coveted Golf Inc. Renovation of the Year award in 2014. Now, back in my cherished home state, I am immensely grateful to be embracing my true passion while serving people I hold dear.
