Jenna Wylie (nee Birch) (Dn 07-09) studied for the IB at Rossall before moving to the USA to take up a golf scholarship at Armstrong State University and study for a degree in Psychology.
Jenna successfully completed her degree in 2014 and, having achieved significant sporting success during this time, she is now Assistant Coach for the Armstrong men’s and women’s golf programme at the university which is situated in Savannah. She is also a support professional, working with individuals with disabilities. Jenna intends to continue her education and is hoping to complete a masters degree in the near future. Jenna met her husband Justin, who is also a keen golfer, whilst at university and they married in 2016.
Her success on the golf course includes an honourable mention WGCA All-American as a sophomore in 2011-12, advancing to the 2012 NCAA DII National Championships as an individual and finishing 21st. She was named the PBC Co-Player of the Year and a third team WGCA All-American as a junior in 2012-13 and as a senior, she earned WGCA Scholar All-America and honourable mention All-American honours.
We hope that Jenna will come and visit Rossall Golf Academy when she is next in the UK and share her skills and experience with our students.
