2017 Board of Directors

Dallas EWGA Board of Directors Community

Jackie LaFollette - President

Since joining EWGA in 2013, I’ve had the opportunity to meet some fabulous women from Dallas and across the country from other EWGA chapters.  I wish I had found this organization years ago! My new friends and business connections are priceless.  Getting to compete at different levels has been both challenging and rewarding.  

As much as I love playing golf with my husband, now I have the ability to play golf with other women and go on “girl golf getaways”! There are so many wonderful benefits available to our members through EWGA.  Come join us for a round or two and meet my friends and hopefully you'll want to join our wonderful organization, too!

 

 

Terri Rackham - Member Services Director

I grew up in Arizona, attended the University of Arizona and worked in Human Resources and Training for several hotel companies before taking time off to be a stay-at-home mom. I came into golf later in life, in my forties.  It was something I'd grown up with, as my dad was an avid golfer, but  I was never interested I was living in Iowa and agreed to take a few group lessons with friends. Our PGA professional started us out the right way, I hit the ball and was hooked! After my divorce, I moved to Texas and golf was my gateway to getting acquainted and meeting new friends. In EWGA, I have found an organization that melds golf, friendship, travel and competition.  

 

 

Barbara Miller - Member Recruitment Director

I found this amazing group of golfers through a referral from a friend in April of 2014.  I've been playing golf for many years and have been looking for a group like this. The EWGA has just the right mix of instruction, practice, and a bit of friendly competition. There are many enthusiastic golfers of every skill level. I've had the opportunity to meet extraordinary women who work in a variety of fields. We've had a wonderful time getting together with the common interest of the great game of golf. When I'm not playing golf I love to travel and oil paint. Work occasionally gets in the way of all my fun when I find myself being a System Engineer specializing in Linux server and Virtualization architecture. 

 

 

Elaine Stillman - Finance and Records Director

Having owned a giftware manufacturing business for 30 years, I was winding down that phase of my life and attempting to find an outdoor activity to replace the many hours I had spent at work.  New to golf, I was introduced to the Dallas Chapter of the EWGA by Crystal Moore in the fall of 2013.  My goal was to find other women to play with.  I scored on that goal and then some!  Not only did I find a great group at Girlfriend Golf every week (including socializing afterwards), but I had many opportunities to meet new golfers and play at many different courses all over the Metroplex every month.  The group embraces all skill levels and the camaraderie is friendly and supportive.  I was thrilled to take this Board position to contribute to this great organization.   

 

  

De Phillips-Johnson  -  Marketing Director

I am the founder of Nappiology, Inc., a 501(c)3 non profit natural hair organization.  About five (5) years ago I was introduced to this game we call golf and fell in love with it.  One of my new missions in life is to promote and recruit other women to learn to play golf.   I've been a member of Dallas EWGA since 2014 and I've enjoyed posting chapter activities on my personal Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages!  I want to make women aware of this great organization in Dallas and encourage others to join and play the game of golf.

I have participated in a number of EWGA events throughout the years to improve my game.  I enjoy the fellowship with other Dallas EWGA members and to also learn more about the game.  I hold a Bachelor's degree from Wayland Baptist University.  

 

Shelley King D'Souza - Events & Activities Director

Shelley began playing golf in 2000 after 3 years of heading up a celebrity charity golf event for her company's title sponsorship of the National Spinal Paralysis Foundation.  After joining EWGA Corpus Christi in 2000, Shelley established a handicap, won her flight in the Chapter Championship and ultimately winning 1st place Low Gross at the EWGA Championship in Kiawah Island, SC, being the first winner from Corpus.
