Ms. Romaker has been involved with Pro Kids | The First Tee San Diego since the very early days when she was introduced to Ernie Wright, the founder, as he was first putting the program together. She was the first Treasurer and has been on the board ever since, serving in several board positions over the years. She is currently chair of the fund development committee.
Amy is also involved in the Girls Mentoring Committee which offers the young ladies in the pro-gram an opportunity to interact with successful women in the community. Beyond golf events, the GMC takes the girls on outings and field trips, participates in community projects, arts and crafts and other fun activities. Amy’s goal is to bring more girls into the program and more women into golf. Her fund raising goal for Pro Kids | The First Tee San Diego is to create long term financial security for the organization in order to continue and expand programs for the kids.
Ms. Romaker is also a long time board member of Casa Cornelia, a public interest law firm providing quality pro bono legal services to victims of human and civil rights violations. The Cen-ter has a primary commitment to the indigent within the immigrant community in Southern Cali-fornia. She is also on the board of the Athena San Diego Foundation and has chaired the Athena Pinnacle Scholarship Committee for the past 20 years and is currently Chair of the MIT Enterprise Forum where she has also served for 20 years. She is a lawyer by education and currently serves as the Director of Client and Industry Teams at Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton. The law firm is also a large supporter of Pro Kids | The First Tee San Diego.
“My goal is to bring more awareness to this great organization,” stated Amy. “I don’t think people realize all the things that the game of golf provides to underserved kids. Through golf and the academic assistance offered at The Academy, they learn self-discipline, etiquette, comradery, life skills and the importance of education.”
