I became involved in Pickleball after my dad starting talking about it up a couple years ago. At the time, I was playing college tennis and only played pickleball for fun. The second I wrapped up my college tennis career, my dad starting drilling me in pickleball, and I loved every second of it. I have more fun in playing pickleball than I ever did competing in tennis! I grew up playing very competitive USTA tennis. After high school, I took some time off before college to play the ITF tennis circuit. I then moved home, and went to UWM to play tennis there for a year, before transferring to Cardinal Stritch University. I played at Stritch for 4 years where our team was ranked top 4 Nationally for NAIA. In my spare time I like to run, boat, and play with my Goldendoodle, Samson.
