Hello! My name is Jill Saiki. I recently graduated from Northern Illinois University with a degree in Dietetics and Nutrition. I have played the game of golf since I was very young and discovered that it is an amazing sport that is both fun and challenging. I believe golf has the power to teach many life lessons: being respectful, being honest, taking responsibility, not dwelling on the past, and working hard to achieve your goals.ObjectiveEvery individual should not be molded into the same "cookie-cutter" swing. I strive to work with an individual's natural swing and improve off of what works best for them. The individuals mental game, fitness, and nutrition is equally important. As a nutritionist, I believe without proper "body fuel" an individual cannot achieve the highest yielding results. This is especially crucial during tournament play.Playing ExperienceI played for the Glenbrook North High School Girls' Varsity Golf Team for four years. During this period I was captain for three years and MVP for two years. I was then recruited and played for the Northern Illinois University Womens' Golf Team. Teaching ExperienceI have worked with children between the ages of 5 and 12, both one-on-one and in a group setting. Besides teaching, I assisted with creating and organizing golf camp activities. I am the assistant coach for the Highland Park High School Girls' Golf Team.
I hope to work with you at the range or on the course in the near future!Jill Saiki
