What do you love about the golf business? It gives me an opportunity to share my sport with other people and hopefully ignite the same passion in beginner players and the next generation that I have for the game.  I love being able to give lessons and see what is flawed in a swing and then figuring out the best way to correct it. And in the end, it is the smile on their face that gives me the satisfaction that I helped them overcome their struggles.  I also enjoy the challenge of buying merchandise and the reward of having a successful selling season. 

Who got you started in the game? My parents. They joined a club when I was 6 years old.  I had a younger brother and we played golf in the summers and on vacations.

Did you play college golf? No, after graduating from UNT, I moved to Tucson and started playing again.  I found a coach, practiced for 3 years, then went out on the mini tours for about 6 years.

What is your most memorable moment in golf? Qualifying for the 1993 and 1999 US. Women’s Open.
 
Where is your favorite golf destination that you have played? Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
