About Me:

I’m an ex-pro tennis player, who turned to coaching in 2015. I also work as a strength and conditioning coach. I believe in developing athletes holistically and use this perspective and my experiences to mould my coaching philosophies.

Why I Coach:

I believe that I am living my purpose when I play the role of a tennis coach. Everything that has happened to and for me so far has made me the coach I am. And I believe that everything I have learned and continues to learn is only so that I can help other players. My aim is to create champions and to do so with a holistic approach.

 

What I Teach Most:

At the moment, I do a little of integrated mental training on court and a lot of self-worth and self-love work with the younger athletes off the court. My aim is to help them empower themselves.

 

Interesting Fact About Me:
