I love the sport of pickleball!!  I am Ambassador of pickleball in Ithaca, NY and surrounding areas. As Ambassador, I am committed to demonstrating and playing the game while welcoming enthusiasts and potential enthusiasts to the sport. 


I was introduced to pickleball about 11 years ago in Florida and have been hooked ever since.  I love pickleball because it is a great sport to play and because it embraces all individuals regardless of age and skill levels. 

As I seek to encourage enthusiasts for pickleball in the Finger Lakes Region and beyond, I will use this venue as a resource to keep all members of the pickleball family current with all things pickleball.

I became passionate about not only playing pickleball, but becoming a student of the game. I welcome the awesome task to teach all who want to learn to play pickleball and for all who don’t know they want to learn the sport! Teaching pickleball is a privilege and an honor that I take seriously. I play and teach with the message that the best is within all of us.
