About Me

Hi my name is Jill, I've been playing since I was age 7, and instantly fell in love with the sport. Ever since then, tennis has been a part of who I am and a huge part of my life. As a junior I was ranked in the top 10 in Southern California, played on ITF junior world circuit and then went on to receive a full tennis scholarship to a Division 1 college, University of the Pacific. As a top USTA Nationally Ranked Junior I was trained by some of the top coaches in the world including Robert Lansdorp (coached Tracy Austin and Lindsey Davenport) and Pancho Segura (coached Jimmy Connors) After playing on the pro tour for 3 years I decided to use my love of the game to teach and coach tennis to others.

Teaching Style

I have a very patient, encouraging, fun, enthusiastic, and motivating teaching style. I focus on building strong technique, fundamentals, and footwork. I strive to make every lesson a fun and positive experience! I truly love playing and teaching tennis, and sharing my love of the game with others.

Student Feedback

Jill is very patient and has a good sense of humor. She was very generous with her time and always concerned about my understanding and progress. I can highly recommend her.

Jill taught me an effective two-handed backhand. She also gives me a great workout when hitting with me. She knows her stuff and is a great instructor.

Both my daughter and I have taken lessons from Jill. My lessons were at a very beginning level and she worked with me to improve my strokes and footwork. Jill was very patient with me and I felt a great sense of satisfaction as I improved. My daughter took lessons from Jill as she was preparing to try out for the high school tennis team. My daughter had little experience playing tennis, however through Jill’s instruction she made the JV team then the Varsity team. My daughter’s skills improved with Jill’s instruction as well as her confidence. I would recommend Jill as a tennis instructor.

Our 7 year old son has taken about 7 Tennis Lessons from Jill. We have seen him improve with each lesson. Jill brings a lot of enthusiasm and energy in her teachings! You can see that she truly cares for her students. Makes the game if Tennis fun leaving our son asking when can he have his next lesson! Thank you Jill!

My Daughter, Kiana learned a lot just in the first lesson with Jill. She seemed to like playing tennis and would like to continue after the first lesson. Jill was great working with Kiana showing her the basic technique. We hope to continue the lessons to help Kiana improve to make it onto her high school team!

Jill taught my 14-year-old daughter basic tennis skills one-on-one last summer and fall. Jill is passionate about tennis, highly skilled, and loves teaching kids. My daughter made a lot of progress while working with Jill. If you are looking for a professional-level player who will teach correct techniques, then Jill would be a good fit."

Jane W. - December 15, 2017

Our daughter has received excellent instruction from Jill, and has made significant progress as a result of Jill’s consistent focus on proper form and movement. Our daughter’s technical skills have blossomed, and her forehand and backhand have not only improved in terms of form, but also in consistency. We have also greatly appreciated Jill's flexibility in terms of scheduling.
