I LOVE tennis and I LOVE business especially business that has to do with tennis. I have been offered an amazing opportunity to combine these two things and bring them to you, through my dream, The Tennis Authority.
We all know there is something special about people involved in tennis. This was something I observed from a very young age and knew I wanted to be part of it. I always admired the grace and class that came with the sport, but being from a rural area I did not have a lot of direct exposure to the game until I was in junior high school. My P.E. teacher had played in college and I began taking lessons from her.
I fell in love with the sport even more at that time and continued to play throughout high school. There was never anything special about my abilities in the sport, but I loved the game. After graduating from high school a year early I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do so I stuck close home and attended the local community college where I searched and researched and came across the Tennis Tech program at Tyler Junior College. OH MY GOSH! You mean I can get a degree in tennis? I transferred the next year where I made some great contacts and met some truly amazing people who love the game as much as I do. From there I went on to complete my education at The University of Houston where I earned my B.S. in Kinesiology - Sports Administration.
I also am a certified personal trainer and nutritionist. I have been in the tennis or fitness industry since and today have the amazing opportunity each week to host a radio show where I learn about products and services in tennis. I cannot tell you the joy this experience has been and what phenomenal opportunities have presented themselves since.
I currently reside in Dallas, TX where I live with my amazing husband, Keith, and dog, Hank.
