Originally from Michigan. I have played tennis most of my life. I was the Assistant Academy Director at the New England Academy of Tennis in Natick for many years, coaching several national and internationally ranked players. I was also fortunate to have coached a handful of WTA tour players and on the grass courts of the Longwood Cricket Club. I am a USPTA certified professional. This is my 20 th year of certification and I still have the same passion for not only the sport of tennis, but the continuing education and ever evolving technical/ technique side of the game. I am also USTA certified in Sports Science and Biomechanics. “ Tennis is a great representation of life. You have ups and downs , you have to problem solve and you have to deal with failure in your time on the court. Its all how you pick yourself up and continue on your journey that makes the difference.” I have been blessed to be able to have played tennis at all levels. From High School , College and as a Professional. Now the ability to share my knowledge of the game is what I really am passionate about.
