Meet our Leaders

VICKY KEITH, President

Company and Job Title: Principal - Vicky Keith Consulting

 

I have organized and run board meetings for the James Beard Foundation, French Culinary Institute, Make-a-wish Foundation, Provincetown International Film Festival, Cape Cod Economic Development Board, Packard Foundation and many more.  In addition, I have consulted large corporations in the areas of complex organizational change, strategy implementation and executive team behavior. I have worked at the executive level with such companies as Disney, IBM, GE, Darden Restaurants, Boston Scientific, McKesson, PepsiCo, AT&T, and Delta Airlines.
 
Our new affiliation with LPGA puts us in a unique position to raise our profile and visibility in the golf world, locally and nationally.  This is a perfect year to get additional high profile sponsorship, local and state-wide press and put us permanently on the map as THE women's golf organization to join in Fort Lauderdale.  As chapter president, I will guide the board in setting the vision and goals for the year and mobilize our contacts to execute against those target goals.

CELESTE METHOT, Golf Events Director

Company and Job Title: Southeastern Medical Supply - Retired

 
For the past 6 years I have been a member of the Fort Lauderdale Chapter. I am a former owner of a family-owned and operated Home Medical Equipment company located in Central Florida. 

I have served our chapter as Golf Captain for the last 3 years, including coordinator of special events and assistant to the Director of Golf. In addition, I served as the Committee Chair for the Broward County Women's Amateur.
 
I want to continue to support women's amateur golf in any way I can. We all play for different reasons; some of us want the competition and others want just the camaraderie of playing with their friends. I want to put more fun in the fun events and more competition in the competitive ones. I would like to make sure that this chapter provides something to satisfy all our members' golfing wants for all different skill levels, and continue to provide us access to the best golf courses in South Florida.

DEBBIE LEVINE, Member Recruitment Director

Company and Job Title: ConsultantEWGA - Fort Lauderdale, FL

I have been a member of the Ft Lauderdale chapter for 3 1/2 years. During this time I have actively promoted this fabulous organization to every woman I meet; on the golf course, at golf clinics, and at social gatherings. In my professional life I have been a consultant for 25 years, helping large organizations define future strategies and implement enabling technologies which allow them to compete at the highest level. In the past I was on the board for Fort Lauderdale Children's Theater, and have served on many committees throughout my career.

As a goal for next year, I would like to organize member recruitment events to help increase our membership as well as a few special events, such as a member/guest tournament, to provide others the opportunity to experience the excitement of this organization first hand. It would be an honor to continue to serve on our board, allowing me to introduce women to this wonderful game of golf.
