She was inducted into the Laurel School Sports Hall of Fame for this contribution. After high school, she attended Gannon University in Erie, PA, where she received a full ride to play on the women’s varsity team.

Her career as an LPGA Teaching and Club Professional began when she was hired as the first female Head Golf Professional for the Cleveland Metroparks in Cleveland, OH. There she ran 27-hole and 36-hole golf courses. During her tenure, she created several women’s golf initiatives which were recognized by the Ohio Parks and Recreation, Crain’s Business Magazine, and the African American Golfers Digest.
