JoLynne started playing golf when she was 12.  When she entered into the professional world, she realized that while the golf course was a place where business connections were made, not a lot of women were out there.  Even though she was intimidated by the lack of women on the course she quickly learned to say “yes” to every golf outing she was invited to, and began to make valuable connections along the way.
