Not Only is Midwest Section Class A Member, Karen McMeekin a great teaching professional, she also has taken on a passion of hers in fighting cruelty to animals.
When Karen moved to Tennessee from South Florida in 2004, she learned the plight of the homeless pets in the area. Her original intention was to move to Crossville to teach golf. She relocated to the mountains after teaching school for 11 years following her graduation from the University of South Florida.
She eventually began playing amateur golf across the State and then climbed to the ranks of the LPGA Class “A” status. While building a golf business in Fairfield Glade at the former 4 Seasons Par 3, she became more involved in animal welfare.
