Why "We Thrive Too?"
We thrive too started as a way for Whitney and Michelle to marry up their two passions: Cornhole & being a part of massive transformation and fulfillment for women. Whitney & Michelle started Girls Throw Too to support women in cornhole and quickly realized the mission was bigger than tossing bean bags into a hole. It was only natural at that point to create "We Thrive Too" to house the personal development side of both cornhole and life because these founders truly believe that Corhole is the Solution to most chronic life challenges. Programs cover topics such as yoga, cornhole, weight, stress, and anything that can generally improve lives.

Whitney is a graduate of the College of Charleston, S.C., has a Master’s degree in education.
Whitney lives in Annapolis, Maryland with her husband, Bobby, and their 3 young daughters. Bobby became an avid Cornhole player a few years ago. Whitney would help him practice outside at their home and she quickly became equally as addicted as he was to the sport. Now they play cornhole 7 days a week and are constantly trying to learn new strategies to improve their game.
After attending her first tournament, Whitney was shocked to realize how few resources are out there dedicated to female players from levels beginner to competitive. Everything she could find (blogs, articles, podcasts) seemed to be geared more toward advanced to pro level women, or men of any level. This is where the idea for Baggin’ Broads first emerged. Whitney was determined to create a unique and engaged community serving all women with a love for the game. Whitney hopes that by growing this business, more women will feel comfortable and eager to play, and female presence within the sport will soar!Learn More about Whitney
