How long have you been an LPGA member?
How was the process of becoming a member for you?
Playing tests are always stressful, but I made sure I was prepared for the written and teaching evaluations and passed on my first attempts.
What does it mean to be an LPGA member to you?
To be associated with the premier professional women’s sports association means the world to me. The T&CP members are some of the best people you will meet and the best teachers of the game. I am honored to call them my friends and colleagues.
What is the best part about the membership for you?
Teaching golf is passionate for me, and having a group of women that are members of a nationally recognized organization, who have the same passion as I have, is an amazing thing to be a part of.
What advice would you give someone just starting the program or thinking about starting?
It’s a major leap of faith to start a new career, but if you want it you can have it. Be confident and patient with yourself and you can achieve anything.
What do you love most about the game of golf?
The quiet and serenity of the golf course. It can be an escape for 4 hours. Being outside and watching the ball fly.
20 years of teaching golf and I still enjoy going to work, to help people learn the game and enjoy the game a little more
