Metro Ladies Golf Inc.
Meet our Summer Student!Kari Harding is the new Summer Student working as the Social Media Consultant & Event Planner with Metro Ladies Golf. I am currently enrolled at Western University going into my fourth year of the undergraduate management program with a major in Marketing.I am originally from Shelburne, Nova Scotia and I attended Rothesay Netherwood School in New Brunswick from grades 10 – 12 where I grew up playing soccer, basketball, and softball. Sports have always been an important part of my life as I value the athletic and social experiences that you gain from organized sports. When I no longer had organized sports in my life, I started to miss these opportunities. I began playing golf during my second year of University to open myself back up to these great social experiences that come from playing sports and fell in love with the game last summer. I am looking forward to improving my skills for this great game that can be played for the rest of my life. I have previous leadership experience planning and executing philanthropic and social events for my sorority, and I am looking forward to working with Sara to plan events and games for you to make this a great summer of golf. ...
