Tessa Brouillette is from West Lafayette, IN. At the age of six, her grandparents introduced her to golf. Little did she know that a week of summer golf camp would change her life in such a positive way.  
 
Brouillette was born in China, and adopted by her American parents when she was just 1 year old. She suffered from both physical and cognitive delays related to living her first year of life in an orphanage. The physical delays resolved quickly with physical and occupational therapy. She struggled academically as an elementary student, but her success with the game of golf provided her with the confidence, and drive she needed to become a successful student athlete. 
 
She met her high school golf coach at her first golf camp, and he was pivotal in “lighting her fire” for the game of golf. She joined CIJGA (Central Indiana Junior Golf Association) and began playing in junior tournaments. She learned that success didn’t come without hard work and commitment. This also helped her in the classroom and she achieved high academic success as well.   
 
As a senior in high school, she qualified for the Indiana State Golf Tournament. Shortly after that tournament, she was contacted by the coaching staff of the University of Northwestern Ohio, with an offer to visit their campus. After meeting with them, she was offered a full ride scholarship to play on their golf team.    
 
She played for them from 2014 to 2018, she helped the Racers to two NAIA National appearances, a pair of regular-season tournament crowns, and was honored with Characters of Champions Award. Brouillette played an exceptional number of rounds in her collegiate career. Brouillette helped the Racers break many records, and a variety of statistical accomplishments. Brouillette graduated from the University of Northwestern Ohio in June 2018, with a bachelors degree in Business Administration with a Concentration in Marketing. 
 
Brouillette's love for the game has lead her to teach golf to the younger generation. Brouillette wants to teach and provide insight to up and coming golfers. Brouillette is passionate about the sport and wants to inspire individuals to follow their dreams and to teach important life lessons. In the end, she wants to create an emotional experience where she aims to be enthusiastic, fun, patient and acknowledge and validate feelings or frustrations as they arise. Most importantly, she aspires to help them use these emotions as determination to work towards a realistic goal they have set for themselves.  
 
She truly feels blessed to be given the opportunity to join the Lion Junior Golf Club as an instructor. She’s very excited to share her passion and love for a game that has meant so much in her life.
