Personally I have played competitively since I have been 11 years old. I am a USPTA certified professional. I have taught at the Racquet Club of Columbus from August 2014-July 2015, The Players Club from June 2009- August 2014, currently at April Sound Country Club since July 2015. I was a 3-year starter at Ohio Dominican University. All conference 2012-2014. Academic Excellence from 2012-2014. Multiple academic All-Excellence award winner every semester since I have been in the conference from 2012-2014. I was apart of the first team in school history to qualify for the NCAA National Championships. Ever since I was in college my love of tennis grew exponentially and ever since that time I have wanted to help anyone who I have come into contact with to have the same love of the game and accomplish their goals. I will help my students achieve their goals by having a step by step process to assess their original skill level, work with one aspect at a time for each different stroke until they excel at that aspect. I will always use positive reinforcement when they correctly accomplish their tasks and I will always ensure to make it a fun and competitive environment for all my players and that they leave feeling accomplished and enjoying the game even more than they did when they walked onto the court.
