She has won three professional tour events, played in the 2001 Women’s U.S. Open, was the Arizona Junior State Champion, a Rolex Junior All-American, and college golf scholarship recipient.

Kris is a Certified Golf Fitness Instructor, certified by the Titleist Performance Institute, which means that she can help you identify any mobility or stability issues that are preventing you from making the most efficient swing possible.  With this knowledge she can help you build a swing that is perfect for your own body.  To complement your golf lessons, Kris recommends seeing a TPI certified fitness trainer to build a stronger, more flexible golf physique.  

Kris is also a TPI Certified Junior Golf Coach, which means she has been trained to help juniors learn age and gender appropriate sports skills.  For more information on Long Term Athletic Development (LATD) programs, please visit  Kris draws from this reasearch when teaching your junior how to play golf.
