I am currently 38 years old eagerly awaiting the Masters division. I graduated from Chico State earning a Bachelors of Arts degree in Liberal Studies and a Teaching Credential. In 2006, I moved to Sacramento to start teaching with Folsom Cordova Unified School District, which is about the time I started playing disc golf on a daily basis. I found a small technical course called Schweitzer Grove and joined the Mutha Putter Disc Golf Club. In 2011, I played my first A-tier tournament, California State Championships and got my PDGA #48129. In 2011, I attended Worlds in Santa Cruz and decided to start my own tournament for Women Disc Golfers. Monarch Migration is currently in its 9th year at Shady Oaks Disc Golf Course. I also help run the Poppy Series Northern California Women’s Series with Gayle Key and Kristine King. DGA has been extremely supportive along the way. My other hobbies include sewing quilts, (yes, disc golf quilts), fused glass art, and making trophies and other creative items for tournaments and raffles.

Strongest part of your game? What needs work?
The strongest part of my game is consistency. I make smart tournament choices and pick the right disc for the shot. I would like to work on getting more distance from my drives.
Best tip for a new player?
Get out and play often. When I first started playing disc golf I went to the course more than 3 times a week. I started meeting disc golfers who helped improve my game, got me involved with clubs, and made long lasting friendships.
