A PGA Member Professional for over 10 years, Amy is regarded as one of the industry's leaders for the PGA's initiative, Get Golf Ready. Amy grew up in a small suburb outside of Houston where she was introduced to the game of golf at the age of four and by the age of seven Amy was establishing an impressive junior career in the Houston Golf Association, often selected as the city's Player of Year. For 4 straight years, her record was 30 wins of 33 events and one second with three titles including the Texas State Junior Girls Champion. Two consecutive victories in the Pan American Classic in Austin,TX, a constant top 5 contender in the Texas Oklahoma Tournament, a sixth place finish individually in the state high school championships, Amy also lead her team to a second place finish in the 5A division as a freshman. Amy was a well-known contender on the AJGA circuit playing in numerous events and finally completing her competitive junior career with an impressive stroke average of 72.1.
