I’m originally from Binghamton, NY and transferred to Burlington with IBM in 1995. I have called Vermont my home since then. I worked at IBM for a number of years, then I was the IT Director at Burton Snowboards, and now I run my own IT Project Management Business.
I am married to Dave Farrington, and together we have five children between the two of us – Kira, Cameron, Jack, Paige and Cristian. We live in Burlington, and also we have a condo in Sarasota, Florida that we frequent (part-time) in the winter.
I have been golfing on and off (much more now, less when my kids were younger) since I was 25. Burlington Country Club is my home course where I have been a full golf member for six years. Prior to that I golfed at various courses and in various leagues, mostly around the Chittenden County area. I started playing State Days a few years ago and LOVE it. It’s a great opportunity to explore the many beautiful courses around Vermont, spend the day with friends, and meet a wonderful group of golf ladies every round. I played in my first VSWGA major last year, the Mid-Amateur, and have competed in various tournaments at BCC. My focus this year was on my mental game. I love the book “The Inner Game of Golf” by W. Timothy Gallwey. If you ever hear me humming while I hit the ball, that’s why.
I served as the VSWGA Administrator for the past three seasons, 2018- September 2021. The board has included me in most meetings and asked for my opinion on most matters and I feel like a valuable member of the organization, however, the admin position is not a board position and I am glad to be on the board so that I can be a voting member. I love this organization. I want to continue to further it’s mission and continue to get women out golfing. I look forward to furthering my involvement by being on the board.
What experience do I bring?
- Technology: I’m great with computers and technology. I know golf genius inside and out. I like helping people with computers.
- Process: I am also very process oriented, i.e. I’m always asking “How can we make the process better for our members?”.
- People: I am an extrovert. I like meeting people. When I go to events, I introduce myself to new people. I golf with different people on purpose all of the time. I ask people what they think of the organization and how they think things are going. I really love meeting golf ladies.
- Mission: I am dedicated to this organization and it’s mission. I felt so lucky this year to be able to get out and golf with friends. It was such a bright spot and provided a “sense of normal” for so many of us. I want to make sure we, and others, get to do this for a long time to come.
