As an avid golfer (I normally play over 60 rounds per year) I was excited to learn from Tami of her new venture—KINONA. Intrigued by Tami’s story and vision of creating well-fitting, stylish golf clothes for the average women, I am thrilled by this opportunity to help spread awareness of the brand. I “retired” from a wonderful career in fundraising and marketing when my children were young, and now that they are mostly independent, I am ready for a new challenge—how lucky for me to find one in the golf industry!

Where’s your favorite place to golf?

Wherever I am! I have played in all West Coast states, as well as in Montana, Idaho, Texas, North Carolina and Hawaii—I like to golf everywhere I go! It would be impossible to pick a favorite.

If you could golf with anyone, who would it be?

My dream foursome would include:

1. Arnold Palmer—This is almost too obvious, but aside from his icon status and incredible golf career, he was an all-around nice guy and I would love to play 18 with him.

2. Annika Sorenstam—My favorite female golfer of all time and I appreciate and respect what she has done with her life after her professional career.

3. Francis Ouimet—His win in the 1913 US Open helped make golf accessible to regular folks, not just the wealthy.
