Andrew Kean, FPUSA Chief Executive and founder had this to say about Gemma....

Gemma was one of Scotlands leading golfing prospects when we sent her to Ohio State University and she enjoyed a tremendous college career.  A great ambassador for FirstPoint and an inspiration to young female athletes, Gemma epitomised what is meant to be a student-athlete and thrived in the pressure of being part of one of the biggest and most recognised university athletic departments in America.  Her nomination as team captain of the Ohio State golf team highlighted her leadership qualities, and her outstanding academic achievements signalled her intent to maximise the opportunity provided to her.  I am sure that she will carry this commitment and focus with her into her professional golfing career.
