Assistant Racquets Professional, Skokie Country Club
I am a USPTA certified Tennis/Paddle Elite Professional. I began playing tennis when I was ten years old in my home country of Latvia where I played for the Latvian National Tennis Team. Additionally, I played in several International Tennis Federation (ITF) tournaments throughout Europe and the Middle East. In the United States, I played on the Ferris State Tennis Team as line one in doubles and finished playing as line two in singles. In 2016, I received the Most Improved Player of the Year Award for the Midwest Region. I have experience in coaching players of all ages and levels. Currently, I am an assistant director at Skokie Country Club in Glencoe, Illinois coaching and developing tennis and paddle programs. I enjoy teaching paddle and playing on the paddle pro tour. Last year my partner Denise Murphy and I made it to the round of 16 at the national championships.
