My career began with Score Golf followed by five years at the Furry Creek Golf and Country Club near Vancouver, BC. During that time I held responsibilities as server, golf shop attendant, golf shop manager and sales & event manager. I then moved to Vancouver Island as director of sales & marketing for the Arbutus Ridge Golf Club and Olympic View Golf Club for six years. I am currently the General Manager of the Arbutus Ridge Golf Club. All three of these facilities are owned by the GolfBC Group.
During my seven years as General Manager, we have been able to produce industry leading results and record high ratings for member and guest satisfaction surveys, team member satisfaction surveys, social media campaigns and the best financial performance in 25 years. I’ve had the honor of receiving personal industry awards such as Best Professional Service and Employee of the Year. As president for seven years and current Board of Director of Golf Vancouver Island, we received awards for Best Multi-Faced Advertising Campaign, Raising the Bar and Innovator of the Year.
I have committed time to world class golf tournament planning committees, Tourism Victoria Board of Directors, Tourism Vancouver Island Board of Directors, South Cowichan Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, British Columbia Golf Marketing Alliance Board of Directors and more. I have also been a guest speaker at the National Golf Course Owners Association Annual Conference, Vancouver Island Economic Summit, various post-secondary institutions and more.
I completed my Bachelor of Commerce Degree online at Royal Roads University after completing my Golf Operations Management Diploma at Selkirk College. I look forward to transferring my skills and knowledge to the Selkirk College learners in a highly interactive manner.
