Golf: Introduced to golf by mom and dad at age of 6. In those days, Joey, Mark and Gevin headed up the camps at Cordillera. My interest in golf continued and I played on the 7th grade Geneva Golf Team last year. I love golf more and more each time I am able to play. I enjoy practice and lessons with Gevin when I can. He’s an awesome teacher and friend and helps me improve my game. My favorite club in the bag is my Driver.

Future
Hope to attend Texas A&M after graduation from Geneva. Still not sure about my major but looking at careers that involve international travel.

Favorite Cordillera Memories
Beyond all the memories of adventure camp, golf camp, kayaking and learning about shot guns and shooting sporting clays, the best memory is taking my dad to the pool up at the club to watch the most beautiful sunset shortly before he passed away. For the wake, many of our Cordillera neighbors (it seemed like hundreds) came to the house set up big white tents and brought tons of food to celebrate his life. We even had an Aggie flag that one of my dad’s friends in Cordillera had requested from A&M flying high. It was amazing.
