Sally Pehr has played in national Mah Jongg tournaments and taught men and women how to play the game for many years. She became intrigued with the game when as a little girl, she would hear the clicking of tiles as her mother played Mah Jongg in the living room. Years later, she learned to play while her husband was in medical school. She holds a BA from the University of Texas and is a retired renal social worker. She loves sharing her knowledge of this fun, challenging, and often addictive game that has become incredibly popular in recent years and is played all over the country, both socially and competitively in tournaments across the nation.
