Growing up in London, Ontario, Ginny’s backyard was 27 holes of public golf. Ginny began golf at the age of 5 with 5 sawed off hickory clubs, learning the game by caddying and catching the local pro’s golf shots on the fly with her baseball glove!
Ginny entered her first tournament at the age of 9, the Jaycee’s Junior Boys tournament at Thames Valley Golf Course, London, Ontario. Ginny was the only girl in the event, competing against 299 boys.
Fast forward, in 1985 Ginny became British Columbia’s first female golf professional.
Ginny’s first career was a teacher in Ontario and Nova Scotia for 8 years.

Ginny held teaching and/or Director of Instruction positions at Shaughnessy Golf & Country Club, Big Sky Golf & Country Club, Westwood Plateau Golf Club and Musqueam Golf and Learning Academy.
