Titles/accomplishments

The latest one was in LC and Sean Lewis and I won 1st place in Master Scotch Doubles. We came in from the "B" side, and had to beat our opponants twice. First one went hill-hill and the second match was 6-0. Up till the last couple of years, I have been in the top 10 of the NWPA. Have gone to several Regional tournaments. Ted and I won Master Scotch Doubles in 2002.

How did you start playing pool?

I started working at the Maltese Tavern in Kelso, Wa when I turned 21. People took me under their wing and taught me the right way. I worked there for 5 years. In 1984 Lexie was born and I took off about 10 years. It has been very hard for me to find the "killer instinct" again, so I try my best now and encouage other women players to join the NWPA.

Do you have any advice for beginners?

Learn the basics and practice them every time you play.
