WHO IS PATRINA KING, PMP?
LIFELONG GOLFER | INNOVATOR | AUTHOR | BUSINESS GOLF COACH
Award-winning Golfer, Entrepreneur, Youth Advocate, Founder of Golf Women Mean Business (GWMB), Founder of Women’s Golf Day in Georgia, Author of 9 Holes 9 Goals: A Beginner’s Guide to Doing Business on the Course, and a Children’s book, My Dad and Me on the Tee.
Prior to starting GWMB, I owned and operated a pre-employment screening company. I used my knowledge from that business to educate youth and young adults on how their actions (sexting, online social media, school fights, drug and alcohol use, theft, etc) will affect future jobs and college applications.
As a former Human Resources Professional, my forte was background checks, employee development and employer unemployment claims. I have understood for a long time that being successful is not always a straight process. I started playing golf at the tender age of 5 and ultimately decided against choosing any of the 36 opportunities to play collegiate golf. (There’s a story)
I am a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. My past affiliation with various organizations and events such as SHRM-Atlanta, United Way VIP, Executive Women’s Golf Association, the National Black MBA Association, the National Coalition of 100 Black Women Inc. MECCA Chapter, and an Interview Expert for Women For Hire, has endowed me with unparalleled expertise and experience. I studied Technical Management with a concentration in Human Resources at DeVry University and Human Resources at Keller Graduate School of Management. I am also a Certified Project Manager Professional (PMP).
Along with my interest in women’s rights, I have developed a great passion for educating professionals on how to use golf for business. I have been featured on various television and blog talk radio shows. However, the epitome of my efforts to educate professionals come in workshops and speeches where I aim to “humanize” golf for those who are hesitant to give the sport a try.
My current home is in the Metro Atlanta Georgia area with my husband. I served with the Mayor’s Youth Program of Atlanta for 6 years, providing Atlanta Public High School seniors training on workforce readiness and job interview skills. I allotted my time in activities for events with 21st Century Leaders, Junior Achievement, and various other high school groups. In spare time not filled with work, volunteerism, or friends and family, I divulge my love of athletics (softball, golf, and football) through sports watch parties and playing rounds of golf with friends and colleagues.
I am on a mission to bridge the gap between golf and business for high level executives and entrepreneurs. I’ve developed golf products specifically designed for my clients and I am very comfortable with being the “only” everything in any room. All of this has prepared me to work with you.
I believe the best way to serve the people is by taking an informative and realistic approach to everyday activities and issues.
