Over 30 years in golf, from amateur to professional to teacher to business woman, golf has afforded unique opportunities to use my strengths in management, marketing and fundraising. I am grateful to work with leaders in the business community, golf industry and the Ladies Professional Golf Association.All that I’ve accomplished in business is because of a game that taught me nine core values. As a Board Member of the First Tee of the Palm Beaches, we teach children: honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy and judgment. After volunteering as tournament coordinator for The Jupiter Children's Foundation first annual event in 2001, I became Executive Director and sole employee of this small but impactful foundation, but our support of the Jupiter community is huge. Donations have gone to the Pittman Preschool, the West Jupiter Tutorial Center, the Nicklaus Children's Health Care Foundation and the 1st Tee of the Palm Beaches. We've raised almost $1,500,000. With the help of our Honorary Chairs, Jack and Barbara Nicklaus, hard work and creative partnerships, we routinely have a sellout event. One of those partners, Braman Motorcars, has brought me on board to assist them with their philanthropic and marketing efforts in Palm Beach County. Finally, I am the Owner/Broker of Marino Realty Group. You may ask how real estate fits into this equation? While teaching on a national scale, I meet people from all over who want what Florida has. Who better to accommodate them, then a friend with golf in common. All of this is then balanced with a multitude of local, civic and non profit affiliations.
