When and how did you develop a passion for golf?
I have played sports all my life. I met my husband playing tennis, but he had some back surgery and said we needed an easier sport. 'Why didn’t we play golf,' I said. 'When I am old and decrepit and can’t play a real sport, I’ll still play golf.' We both immediately became addicted and have been playing ever since.
How has golf impacted your personal or professional life?
We bought a condo at the first private golf course we ever played and would go down on weekends until we decided to move there – I guess you could say we started our careers over in a new location because of golf!
Favorite golf moment?
I teed off 15 minutes after my daughter was born and shot a 75! It is the truth – I let people stew on that for a moment before I mention she is adopted.
How did you decide to get involved with the SCGA Foundation?
Education and athletics have been a key focus in my life. I have been wanting to do some volunteer work in the areas of my passion. The mission of the Foundation is totally aligned with my personal feelings about the valuable life lessons kids can learn from golf. I called the office one day to see how I could help. I also help coach golf for the Special Olympics.
Most memorable moment you’ve had with the SCGA Foundation?
Since I am a new volunteer, I would have to say the G.A.M.E. Club Kickoff event last month. The Foundation staff and volunteers provided a really fun and meaningfull event for kids (and adults!). From the food to the golf events to the presentations and education, it was a terrific event.
