Before joining the Invited Clubs family in 2020, she was the Head Golf Professional at The Loma Club in San Diego for over 7 years.

She really enjoyed the social features the Club offers and meeting and mingling with the Members after golf. One of Kat’s passions is growing golf among the ladies. Helping ladies feel comfortable playing golf is one of her goals as a teacher. She has also helped men of all skill levels lower their handicaps and become better players. Kat has also become extremely involved in junior golf, from LPGA Girls Golf, PGA Jr League, as well as Crush It; she teaches young golfers this great sport and gets them excited to play throughout life. Besides teaching golf, she enjoys spending time with her family, fishing, boating and visiting the beach with her husband, Brandon, and three dogs, which are sproodles; Par, Birdee & Caddie.
