Approximately twenty (20) years of experience at the Scholastic, Collegiate, and Professional Level as a player, coach, teaching professional.
During the past fifteen(15) years I have been involved in a variety of teaching and coaching situations that have substantially broadened my understanding of how to promote the game of tennis from basic fundamentals to competitive play.
I enjoy working with people at all levels and feel I have demonstrated an ability to get along with diverse groups in a variety of working environments.
