"All I cared about in tennis was winning"-Peter Sampras
I've played tennis since I was a kid. I made varsity all four years of high school and was the number 1 player and team captain 3 of those years. I was recruited by a few sub D-1 schools but I passed up offers to try my hand at the professional level. I coached elementary and middle school after-school tennis programs and have been the AHS girl's coach for the past 3 years.
I was a semi-professional tennis player out of high school. I competed in a few tournaments but quickly found out I was out of my league.
What I Love about Coaching... Playing tennis. I just really enjoy being outside playing tennis. I'm happy to pass that on to new players and seeing others take joy in a sport that I've loved for a long time.
