The Louisiana Golf Association is pleased to introduce Alexis Deese, our newest P.J. Boatwright Intern from Charlotte, North Carolina. Alexis brings a dynamic blend of experience and eagerness to our team as she begins to immerse herself into the world of golf.

A recent graduate of Appalachian State University, Alexis holds a bachelor’s degree in Digital Marketing and Business Management. Her academic journey has been supplemented by internships at both Beech Mountain Ski Resort and Hanes Geo Components, where she developed valuable marketing skills and a passion for tackling new ventures.

While Alexis is relatively new to golf, having focused on other sports growing up, she is going into this opportunity with enthusiasm and curiosity. Joining the LGA, she sees a chance to expand her skill set and explore the unique challenges of the golfing industry.

In her own words, Alexis shared her career aspirations: “My career goals are to work in marketing, but I am still unsure what area I would like to focus on. I love both the creativity and logistical aspects of marketing and want to explore where my skills are best suited to help leave a positive impact as much as possible.”

During her internship with the LGA, Alexis aims to contribute to showcasing the values of golf to fans and admirers of the sport. She recognizes the importance of integrity and respect both on and off the course, and she is committed to embodying these values in her work.

Looking ahead, Alexis is excited for a year of personal growth and exploration. She seeks to immerse herself in the culture of golf, drawing inspiration from its enduring values to shape her journey forward.

Beyond her professional pursuits, Alexis enjoys spending time outdoors, whether it’s hiking, snowboarding, or simply soaking in nature’s beauty. She also finds joy in creative activities like painting with friends and experimenting with new recipes.

While her golfing experience may be limited, Alexis approaches the game with an open mind and a willingness to learn. With each swing, she embraces the challenge and excitement of mastering a new skill.

As Alexis Deese embarks on her internship with the Louisiana Golf Association, we look forward to the fresh perspectives and contributions she will bring to our team. Welcome, Alexis!
