Meet The Coaches

Director of Operations

My love for tennis is my key motivator. I have played tennis since I was 3 and I see tennis as much more than a career. The sport has taught me so much in life and passing that on is very important to me.

I am a firm believer that my enthusiasm for tennis comes from the family and community spirit club tennis can bring. ​

 

My passions lie with a combination of sport and business. My enjoyment of the competitive side for all sports, particularly golf and tennis has taught me a lot, which I have transferred to my work. This has driven me to expanding my knowledge of how great businesses thrive.

 

My biggest goal in life is to make tennis accessible and enjoyable for everyone, and pass on that feeling that I get when I walk into the clubhouse of a great sports club!

Performance Coach, Northampton LTC

Success does not rely on your pace, but the purity of your actions and the sincerity behind your efforts.
Tennis is what my entire life revolves around. Having competed at the international women's circuit, tennis has shaped my mindset making me resilient & enthusiastic.


It gives me immense pleasure to step into the shoes of a coach and pass on the valuable teachings and skills on court, working with a varied range of tennis learners from tots to adults, beginners to advanced. I believe if one is willing to learn, then no goal is unachievable.


See you on the tennis court

I have two lovely daughters, Chloe and Sophie. As well as them, I love music, tennis and the ocean. I was born in Boston, raised in New York and am louder than any human being alive. Sometimes when I coach, people in the next town get free tennis lessons because they can hear me.
