My parents bought me a set of clubs for my 7th birthday, and got me started in golf lessons. The addiction was immediate! I took 9 years of lessons from V. Farrell Thomas at Fore Lakes Golf Course. When he figured that he had taught me all he could, he sent me to Ron Branca, the then coach of the University of Utah's Men's Golf Team, and the pro at Rose Park Golf Course. I spent 2 years learning from Ron, who was a great inspiration to me as well. During all the years of the lessons, I played in most of the Utah Junior Golf Tournaments around the state, winning several of them. Meeting and receiving awards and golf tips, while playing in the UJGA, from pros such as Johnny Miller and Mike Reid, were very big highlights. At age 17, I qualified as one of the top 4 girls in the state, to compete in the Girl's Junior Americas Cup held in Oregon that year. Our team from Utah placed 7th overall. I attended Jordan High School and played on the golf team there, lettering every year. My senior year I played in the #1 position over 12 team members, and was awarded Most Valuable Player of the Year. For 2 years, at the recommendation of my High School Coach, I taught golf lessons to elementary kids for Copperview Community Center. This was a very rewarding experience. It was determined that accepting money for teaching would erase my amateur status, so, all of the money that I made teaching, I donated to Jordan High School Golf. This afforded us team shirts, bags, and balls. Throughout my young golf career, I worked at several golf courses, including Mountain View and Alpine CC, to stay as close to the game as I could. I am currently pursuing my Teaching and Club Professional card while working and teaching as an Assistant Professional at Glenmoor Golf and Country Club where I have been for the last 4 years.
