About me

I have been playing golf since the age of 8. Before that I was a figure skater, tennis player, dancer and a singer. I loved to perform but my dad had me try golf because he said I would be too tall and slow for any of those activities (eye roll). The rest is history…

I can’t express how grateful I am for all that the game of golf has given me. So many amazing experiences, challenges, places travelled to and most importantly, the people I have met along the way.

Growing up in Southern California, I played junior golf starting out in VJGA and SCPGA tournaments eventually making it to the highest level, winning AJGA events and being picked for the Junior Solheim Cup Team. I played on my high school boys golf team and won the League Championship, twice. I then went on to play at UCLA and was a three time All-American there. I was a quarterfinalist at a couple USGA events and I am the 2010 Canadian Amateur Champion. I represented the USA in the USA vs Japan matches in Tokyo.

After I graduated from UCLA with a BA in History, I went on to compete on the LPGA Symetra Tour in 2011. I had back to back wins at the end of the season including the Tour Championship to finish 4th on the money list and earned my LPGA Tour Card!

Since 2012 I have played on the LPGA Tour. Living my dream, traveling the world on the biggest stage, living the life I worked for my whole life, is something so special!

in January 2017 I suffered a back injury that sidelined me for the season. During that time I found out that I was pregnant (cue tears of joy.) I had my beautiful daughter November 14, 2017, by far my greatest achievement in life.

In 2018 I went back out on tour with my baby girl Isla. To say it was easy is a lie. Traveling mostly alone with a newborn, managing my injury and keeping up my game isn’t necessarily a great combo, but we did it and I have so much to share with all I have experienced. This last year I experienced some highs and some real lows and I want to share everything because I want to inspire and give hope to everyone I can.

Thank you for visiting and for joining me on this journey!!
