I've been playing tennis since the age of 3 when my mom shared her love of tennis with me. I really enjoyed the sport growing up because it combined personal goals with a team atmosphere. My love for coaching and helping others grew from those early days of being coached, along with a desire to always keep improving. I played High School and Collegiate tennis and even coached the Women's tennis team at my college. After college, I was introduced to the sport of Pickleball when a member of my college tennis team was competing in the US Open of Pickleball in Naples and invited me to come check it out. He showed me how to play on the practice courts at the event that day, and I was instantly hooked. I learned quickly that Pickleball is easy to learn, but challenging to master. I steadily improved my game starting in 2017 and have been a certified Pickleball instructor since March of 2021. I provide learn-to-play, beginner, and intermediate clinics and lessons, as well as, video analysis to youth and adults of all ages.
