Have you ever wondered about the power of conversation? Just starting a conversation isn’t always easy to do. Can you imagine what it’d be like to have a continuous ongoing talk with people who have similar interests and life goals? Here is where we can converse and talk about what it’s like being in the turf industry. I want to get to know YOU! Everyone has a beginning of a story and a dream to fulfill; a part of our life journey waiting to be told.
When I was in college I had a hard time envisioning where I’d be in 5 years, let alone 1 year. However, I knew I always wanted to work in the horticulture industry. It wasn’t until a few years later I first landed a position at a local golf course. My first year I fell in love with the golf course, I loved everything about my job. From that point on I knew I wanted to become a Superintendent. I wasn’t a golfer in the beginning, I actually made fun of people who golfed, probably because I had no idea what the game was about. But as I worked on the course I watched how people golfed, so I basically picked up the idea of what to do. I was really discouraged that it wasn’t easy, but I kept at it and practiced whenever I could. I currently play on a ladies league and I have a blast! I know I will never become a professional golfer, but I aim to become one of the Elite Superintendents, so knowing how to golf just comes with the territory.
