About Me

  • 10 years teaching experience
  • Great with kids, beginners, intermediate, high-performance
  • Patient, fun, encouraging, tough, emphasis on work ethic
  • Coached numerous players now competing in college
  • D1 top player at U of Iowa, PRO: top 400 doubles/top 500 singles

I have a friendly personality and years of experience playing the game. I'm a big believer in work ethic and that's definitely my main focus during a tennis lesson - if someone can be working harder, I'll make sure they are! I try to keep lessons fun while ensuring that the basics are being taught (whether it's fundamentals or the more nuanced parts of the game). I think tennis is a life-long sport that can help build an incredible work ethic and mental toughness for the rest of our lives. I'm also very good at tailoring lessons based on how a person learns (whether that is seeing something or actively doing it over and over again).
