Back in the day, my sports of choice were Field Hockey, Basketball, and Softball. I majored in Physical Education at The University of Massachusetts and was captain of the Field Hockey Team. I was selected to the United States Field Hockey Squad from 1968-1972.

My first teaching position was at Chatham High School in New York where I was responsible for ALL activities including cheerleading and gymnastics. I went on to study at East Stroudsburg State College in Pennsylvania and received my Master’s Degree there. Next I taught and coached at Pine Manor College in Boston, Mount Holyoke College in Northhampton, and the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut.

I love being able to offer Intense Pickleball Workshops throughout the country as a traveling clinician. Pro-Lite Sports Inc. has selected me to represent their endeavors. As a Pro-Lite Pro I offer workshops with nationally-acclaimed player Simone Jardim. I have traveled to San Francisco, Illinois, Dallas, Minneapolis, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and all parts of Florida, (Jupiter, Clearwater, Englewood, Sarasota, Piper’s Landing, Riverbend) to give my workshops.

I am the author of “Intense Pickleball Camp — Take it to the Next Level”  and also creator of the instructional series on You Tube — picklepongdebyoutube.
