2019 Board of Directors

Ashley.jpgAshley Schoen - President

"I stumbled upon golf back in 2008, I randomly decided I wanted to start playing golf. So after Googling for women’s golf leagues, I came across the EWGA organization. The next day I went and picked up a set of clubs and started watching you-tube videos of Tiger Woods to learn how to play. Three months later I had the opportunity of playing in the Mock Chapter Championship that was hosted by the local Milwaukee, WI chapter and have never looked back since.

I firmly believe in the tenants of the LPGA Amateurs and am proud to be a part of it. I have made some amazing friends and even developed my golf game along the way. When I am not playing golf, I work as an IT professional specializing in architecting large scale Business Intelligence/Advanced Analytics platforms and when I'm not working, I love to travel, drink fine wine, and snowboard."

I am a native Texan from Amarillo where I played golf in high school for the Amarillo High School Sandies.  From high school, I then honed those golf skills at Southwestern University in Georgetown,TX. I had the honor of becoming the first SCAC Women's Golfer to earn back-to-back medalist honors during our team's back-to-back titles in 1998 and 1999.

I am a CPA who started her career in public accounting with Deloitte & Touche in San Antonio.  From there, Ashlee moved to the Austin area to work for Maxwell Locke & Ritter, where she spent twelve years and developed an expertise in governmental accounting and auditing.  Recently, Ashlee has brought her extensive accounting and auditing experience to Bott & Douthitt, P.L.L.C. where she specializes in governmental accounting for municipal utility districts in and around Central Texas.

"Hello fellow LPGA Amateurs! I didn't start golfing until I was 50, but have been hooked ever since. I love the game and love the rules. When I'm not working as a Technical Account Manager at Tableau Software, I try to play as often as I can. I served on the board of the Northwest Ladies Golf Association, mostly as the Events Chair, for several years before moving to Austin in 2015. I'm looking forward to another great year of fun golf with this great group of ladies, and would be honored to serve on the board of the Austin chapter of the EWGA."
