Background: My venture into the tennis world started when I was young, at 15 I was appointed Head Coach at Kirby Tennis Club in the UK, and at 16 I became one of the youngest LTA Level 3 certified coaches in Britain. During this time I was a member of the club Board, and thoroughly enjoyed lobbying for better facilities, fundraising, and finding creative ways to increase membership. I am currently the CEO and Founder of CJTennis Coaching Inc. (est. 2020), a North Shore based tennis company that offers private lessons, indoor kids’ programs in Edgemont Village, tournaments, and school programs to our local community.
Why I’m Involved: I am passionate about increasing participation for people of all ages on the North Shore. It has been frustrating to see many local courts in poor condition, or even being destroyed for housing (including my home court on Lonsdale/21st), this has motivated me to join the growing voice of our amazing local tennis community, helping to keep facilities open and thriving for our generation, and future generations to come.
