BS – Iowa State University

Brandi graduated from Iowa State University in 2010 with a BS in Agriculture Education and a minor in Horticulture. While in college, she had the internship of a lifetime at Pinehurst and always hoped to move back to North Carolina at some point. Upon graduation, she taught high school math, science, and agriculture, while coaching a variety of sports and working part time on a golf course in Iowa. In 2014 she made the big move to North Carolina where she was able to start working as a spray technician at Pinehurst. Brandi quickly moved up to a foreman position and eventually took a job as an assistant golf course superintendent at The Omni Grove Park Inn Golf Course in Asheville, NC. She worked as an assistant for three years before deciding that her true calling was in academia and working to help support golf course superintendents around the world. Her research is focused primarily on the impact of cultural management practices on golf course putting greens (specifically aerification and top dressing) on organic matter accumulation, root health, and turf quality, as well as the influence of organic matter on disease severity.
