My father introduced me to tennis at the ripe age of 3 years old. From day one I was hooked. I spent most of my life on a tennis court with my family and friends. I was lucky enough to have a father who’s passion for the game of tennis is never-ending. My father also has a great understanding of tennis because he’s played tennis his entire life and coached tennis during his college years. I have been coached by various coaches, but each one taught me something vital in tennis and in life. I played number one all three years in middle school, and also played varsity tennis 3 years. I’ve been coaching tennis for 5 years. Tennis has played an important part in my life and taught me valuable lessons on and off the court. I pride myself on communicating these lessons in a positive enthusiastic unique way for each individual student.
