How long have you been an LPGA member?

Since 2000

How was the process of becoming a member for you?

I loved it; the education and the interaction with experts was exactly how I hoped I would be trained and mentored. Kathy Murphy, Dr Debbie Crews and Jane Frost inspired me and I knew from the start I had made the right choice.

What does it mean to be an LPGA member to you?

I am a member of an organization of highly competent, qualified and passionate women who share the same respect for the game of golf as I do. It means everything to me.

What is the best part about the membership for you?

The interpersonal relationships I have been able to develop and the opportunities to learn from so many incredible women.

What advice would you give someone just starting the program or thinking about starting?

Find a mentor…….seek someone to help guide, inspire and support you through the certification process and beyond. Invest in yourself so you are worthy to be invested in.

Words of Wisdom:

I am a proud member of the LPGA T&CP. This is a second career for me, and one I have never regretted choosing. I immersed myself in the process, respect those who came before me, and am grateful to be a part of such an amazing organization. I welcome the newer members who ask my advice or guidance and hope to give back as I was given to.
