About Me

I am a 28 years old and have been playing tennis going on 16 years now. I played collegiate tennis at the University of Texas at Austin and trained for the pro tour for about six months. I have been coaching tennis for about 10 years and used to run my own tennis camps in Texas. I was a tennis Pro at Barton Creek Resort in Austin, Texas before deciding to teach independently as well as start my career in the health industry. I am also a registered dietitian (specialties: sports nutrition and weight loss) and a NASM-CPT. My students get a lot of "bang for their buck" you might say because they not only get tennis lessons, but also have the opportunity to capitalize on nutrition and training to enhance their game with me. I also have a strong sports psychology background from my father, who played doubles on the pro tour and is psychologist.

Teaching Style

-Single stroke drills
-Footwork drills
-Conditioning/cool down
-Homework for next practice given, discussion of any necessities (basic nutrition and training depending on level, goals and age)
