Director or Racquet Sports
Serving since 2019
In 2005 I moved to Bradenton, Florida where I began training at IMG Academy. I was coached some by Nick Bollettieri and began playing ITF tournaments to build my WTA ranking. I would do this for 7 months and have an international ranking of top 550 before enduring a career ending injury. This chapter would end but my next would surely not disappoint. As a coach I find great pride working first hand in player development. The magnitude of the sports industry requires a multitude of dexterity and I have spent my life learning this from the inside—out. I have worked at FM Tennis Academy and Downtown Club at The Met and now at Bay Oaks CC. On or off the court, the world of sports is fiercely competitive. Behind every successful athlete there is a scrupulous team of support. To impel victory within the industry it takes an entire network; from community and global relations to personal management and coaching. Look forward to working with you all at Bay Oaks!
