I’m currently a professional golfer with the LPGA and LPGA Symetra Futures Tour. My first year as a professional was 1993 just after I graduated from Northern Illinois University. That year I qualified for the LPGA on my very first attempt. As an amateur, I won eight collegiate tournaments and was a three-time winner of the Northern Illinois University (NIU) MVP award. I was a two-time semifinalist at the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship in 1991 and 1992. In 1998, I was the youngest player ever to be inducted into NIU’s Hall of Fame.

I’ve competed in three U.S. Women’s Open Championships (1997, 2001, and 2010) and two British Opens (2005, 2006). I was the winner of the 2002 Thailand Ladies Open Championship and I also won the Ladies Asian Golf Tour Order of Merit that same year. In 1998 and 2003, I won the Illinois Women’s Open. My best finish on the LPGA was 10th place in 1995 at Pinewild CC in Pinehurst, NC.
