I am the youngest of four siblings, and we all bowled youth leagues while growing up. I think it was used as a chance for the parents to get a much needed weekly break. As my siblings all stopped bowling, kept going until I graduated high school. Starting a career in restaurant management was not conductive to bowling, so I got out of the game for several years. That was until one day at Golden Corral I was talking to one of our servers and heard him bragging about going to Vegas and all the money he won bowling. This started a friendly ‘smack talk’ until later that year when he convinced me to get back into a league. Just like that I was back hooked on the game I loved. From there it was league once a week, then twice a week. I started getting back into tournaments after that too, often driving to events once or twice a month. I always tell people that as my parents were getting divorced while I was in elementary school, and being 5 years younger than all of my siblings, bowling is what kept me out of trouble. I grew up in a much different situation than my siblings, and as they were all leaving the house, I spent my time being dedicated to school, working, being in a rock band, and bowling to keep focused.
Now, several years later, I could not see myself giving up bowling for more than a few weeks between fall and summer league. I have started to dabble in running events, running strike pot raffles, building a website around sharing tournaments, and now am excited to be a part of team Virtue! As recently as September 2022 I was asked about joining the USBC Board for Tallahassee, and advised I would love to take part. Additionally, I travel for a big event or two in Vegas every year, have bowled in a few PBA regional events (not so well though), and have joined on staff with California Bowling, Bowlifi, and with Creating the Difference.
