About Me

For the past twelve years I have been living and teaching tennis professionally in the Portland Oregon area.  As a member of the USPTA I’ve benefitted from continuing education on fitness, racket sport body mechanics, instructional methods and sports psychology.  I applied this education as a private tennis instructor, teaching club members and elite junior athletes,  and as a NCAA women’s tennis coach.  I also competed nationally at the Open level as well as 5.5 rated leagues in the USTA.

I found pickleball in 2014 and was instantly hooked.  I entered my first national pickleball tournaments in 2015 and earned Gold and Silver at the September 2015 Tournament of Champions.  In November, I medaled four times at the USAPA National Tournament including winning Gold in the Women’s Doubles Open with a great friend and partner, Gigi LeMaster.

The USAPA and PTR – Professional Tennis Registry have formed a strategic alliance to grow the sport of pickleball. The new PTR subsidiary (PPR) will become the official education and certification partner of the USAPA. I have agreed to design the PPR’s curriculum and certification programs.

I now travel the country working with recreational and advanced players to improve their all around game technically, mentally, strategically and through improved fitness. I truly believe that every player has a way they can improve, whether that be by little or big strides.

I hope you find something in my website that can help you in your journey.  If you want to arrange a clinic in your area, schedule a private lesson or just ask a question, please contact me here.
