Amy YoakumMy husband and I live in Atlanta and have three grown children. I have worked in Human Resources for over 25 years but dream of playing poker full time when I retire.

I played my first tournament last year on my 50th birthday and luck boxed my way to the money. I decided to get serious about the game and have been in group and
individual coaching for the last six months.

My goal is to play in the Ladies Event at the WSOP this Summer and not be seen as a fish. I joined this group to help promote and support women in poker. I also want to see the poker community become more inclusive so more women will see it as a potential career choice.
