How long have you been an LPGA member?
How was the process of becoming a member for you?
It was great. It gave me an opportunity to meet some highly successful mentors along the way. Attending the various classes located all-over the country allowed me to visit places I had never been as well as meet other fellow lady professionals, some who remain my great friends today.
What does it mean to be an LPGA member to you?
It is an honor. I’ve had to endure and overcome many life-challenging obstacles to get to this point, so having that LPGA letters by my name symbolizes achievement to me.
What is the best part about the membership for you?
The network it provides. Getting connected with so many knowledgeable, skilled, and successful ladies is a huge asset. You’re able to learn from fellow LPGA members who completed the process before you and reach out whenever you have questions.
What advice would you give someone just starting the program or thinking about starting?
Write down all of the Pros & Reservations you might have about joining. Seeing it written down on paper usually helps you decide. Once you initially start the program, don’t think about how long you have to go or how much work/studying you need to do, rather, break-up your “to-do” list into smaller chunks, and give yourself small rewards upon completing. It will help you cruise along and you’ll be done with the process before you know it!
What do you love most about the game of golf?
I love the challenge. I played several sports before I picked up golf as a kid, but golf I found to be the most challenging of them all, and it really grabbed hold of me. I remember wanting to work so hard and being so determined to get better. I love how it always challenged me! To this day 23+ years later, it still challenges me every day!
