Role: General Manager (Interim)
Serving Since: 2018
I grew up in Colorado with my amazing family. I earned my degree in Technical Journalism, focusing on Public Relations, from Colorado State University. In 2010, I was presented with an opportunity to move to Texas and this turned out to be the best decision of my life because I found my true passion of working in the private club industry. Las Colinas Country Club is truly my home away from home and I thoroughly enjoy serving the Members of Las Colinas Country Club. I enjoy bringing families together through private club membership and looks forward to building relationships and enriching lives for years to come.

I was born and raised in Denton, Texas and began my tennis journey at the age of 10. As a junior player, I was top ranked in Texas in both singles and doubles. In 1993, I accepted a tennis scholarship to Texas Women’s University, where I graduated cum laude with a major in Business Administration. I played number 1 singles and doubles for TWU, and earned the Athlete of the Year award three out of four seasons.
In 1998, I became the director of tennis at Oakmont Country Club. After building the program and adding two courts to the facility, I moved to Trophy Club Country Club to become the director of tennis there. I expanded the tennis program at TCCC and added three additional courts to the program. In 2009, after 10 successful years at TCCC, I accepted the director of tennis position at Las Colinas Country Club. I am extremely happy to be a part of LCCC, and thrive to serve the Club and its Members on a daily basis.
In addition to being the director of tennis at Las Colinas Country Club, I serve as the DPTA treasurer and the vice president of the Ft. Worth Pros Association. I am USPTA certified.
