Assistant Professional at Foxhills Resort, Surrey
Helped develop and run the highly successful Foxstars programme for our junior golfers. We are currently in our third term of the programme and have 70 juniors playing, after starting the programme from scratch. This involved developing lessons plans for the sessions and delivering those sessions to the highest possible standard. It also required liaising seamlessly between the parents, players and coaches to develop an excellent programme.

59 Club Awards
Member of the Professional team that won the Gold Flag award in 2016 and then retained it again in 2017. This involves delivering excellent customer service to the highest level and maintaining the highest of standards within the resort.

Athlete Mentor for The Dame Kelly Holmes Trust
This has been extremely rewarding work and involves a wide variety of roles, including mentoring young people in sport to fundraising for the programmes that the Trust run.

Touring Professional Golfer
I am a member of LETAS (Europe), ALPG (Australia) and Sunshine Ladies Tour (South Africa). I have been playing professional golf for just over 3 years which has enabled me to learn a wide range of skills. Playing golf around the world has given me the opportunity to interact with people from different cultures and good communication has been vital in these scenarios. Playing in Pro Am’s and giving many clinics was also a large part of being a professional golfer. Organisational skills were also necessary as I was required to arrange flights, accommodation and my busy schedule. I am also very goal orientated as goal setting is key to success in any professional sport.

I was a Brand Ambassador for Chervo Clothing and Recife Belts.

Volunteering
During my time at University in America I was part of the student-athlete mentoring programme. This involved going into schools and speaking to children about what my role as a student athlete entailed and what it takes to be able to combine University studies with sport. I found this part extremely rewarding, being able to help and inspire the children to work hard at both their school work and their sports. As part of this programme I also volunteered at various local events to help raise money for their schools programmes.

Meeting with University sponsors and potential sponsors was also part of my scholarship requirements.

I also worked with the customers to help them decide which clothing would be most suitable for them.
