Shasta is a professional golfer hailing from Flint, Michigan. She began her golf journey at the age of 7. With heavy parental involvement, she continued developing her love for competition through the junior and amateur ranks where she began to become a multiple tournament winner.
That led her to Jackson State University where she studied business with a concentration in accounting. While at JSU, she won 9 collegiate golf tournaments including 4 individual SWAC conference championships setting the conference record of six under par.
In 2011, Shasta earned her LPGA Tour card becoming the 4th African American Woman to earn LPGA Tour Status. During her professional career, she’s won two mini tour events along with qualifying for the US Women’s Open. She spent some time competing on the LPGA Symetra Tour, where she won the 2012 LPGA Symetra Tour Rising Star Award.
“Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.”

In 2014, Shasta decided to step away from the game and explore her accounting background as a tax associate at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. In her third year at the firm, she realized how much she missed playing on tour and decided to pursue the LPGA Tour again.
During her transition back to tour life, she partnered with Women of Color Golf, an organization dedicated to increasing diversity and inclusion in the sport of golf for women and girls through various opportunities such as instruction, on-course play & networking to name a few.
In 2018 at the conclusion of her LPGA Symetra Tour Season, she made her way back to her Alma Mater, Jackson State University, where she was inducted in the JSU Sports Hall of Fame.
