How did you start playing pool?

I started playing pool as a litte girl watching my great grandfather play in the local ice cream parlor in Gretna, Nebraska. I grew up playing with my Uncle and cousins in the local taverns in Pender, NE. In high school, my mother owned a tavern in Omaha, NE. where I would play for fun after school. I moved onto local leagues, APA, BCA, and then NWPA.

Do you have any advice for beginners?

Find a great coach. Set up shots and know the results of your shots. Practice mental exercises.

Favorite pro:

Jeanette Lee. My favorite male pool player is my husband and coach, John Doherty (JD), road and Northwest player.
