Tennis Background Tennis is very much a family sport for me. My parents both played professionally and introduced their love of the game to my brother and myself. My mother played collegietly for UCLA and was ranked professionally top 16 in the world. I started playing competitively at age 10 after I went on a family vacation to watch Wimbledon. This trip got me hooked on the sport! My parents were my instructors, mentors, and coaches. I played USTA Junior tennis all the way until I went to college. I played in the SoCal USTA Junior Region and Nationally I was ranked top 100 nationally in girls 16 and under, but felt that I really blossomed in College tennis. I played for Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and worked my way from playing 6 in the singles line-up to top 2 by my Junior year. Cal Poly Women's Tennis was ranked top 75 nationally all 4 years I played. My singles game improved immensely, but I felt that it was my doubles game that brought me to that extra level. Today, I play 3-4 times a week and still have the same passion for the sport that I did when I was 10 years old at Wimbledon.
