Happy New Year everyone!
Thank you for choosing me to be your new President. I’m excited and honored to lead the LPGA Midwest section into the new year and a new era! I’d like to first thank Rita Reasons for her six years of service to our section as President. Her time and dedication is much appreciated! I’ve learned a lot from Rita while serving with her as the MW Treasurer, and I hope to continue to do great things for our section in my new role as President. I live in Knoxville TN, and I’m the Owner/Director of Instruction at the Tennessee Golf Academy. I teach full time to a wide range of students. I’ve been a Girls Golf Site Director for 17 years, and will be hosting a National Girls Golf Academy this summer at our facility. We are very excited!! I will be attending my first Executive Committee meeting at the end of January at the PGA Show in Orlando. I look forward to jumping in and being part of the bigger picture regarding LPGA business. I will be your voice, a responsibility I take very seriously. Throughout my term as President, I encourage you to contact me with any good news, concerns or questions regarding your membership with the LPGA. My goal is to bring our section closer and create a greater comradery among our members. I want to hear from you! I want to hear about your ideas. I want to encourage you to get involved in some way if you never have. If you’re looking for some guidance and direction, I will do my best to provide you with that. We are all in the same LPGA boat, let’s row in the same direction and make 2017 a year for growth, both personally and professionally! I look forward to working with you and for you!
