When and why did you join MTG?

I think I joined MTG back in 2012. I've played recreational tennis on and off for most of my life, and after moving to NYC I wanted to find a fun way to start playing again.

When and why did you become Women's Director?

I became the director in November 2018. I was asked to serve by the Commissioner and was happy to do so with Teri Cavanaugh as my co-director. MTG has added so much fun to my life and made tennis feasible for me. I'm happy that I will be able to give back. I'm looking forward to continuing the excellent work done by the previous Women's Director, Karen Funfgeld.

How long have you been playing tennis?

Since I was 7 years old, but for most of my life I would only rally with family and friends. I never played competitively until I played in MTG's Winters Doubles League in the winter of 2016/17. At that time, I was very rusty because I hadn't played at all in 3 years. But since then, I've REALLY gotten into tennis and have played singles in a USTA league, and am looking forward to improving, even if that is a slow process.

Tell us more about your tennis background.

During my youth, I took lessons and played with my brothers or friends every now and then. It was all just fun, and I didn't care if I was good. When I was in my second year of law school, I needed a diversion, so I started taking lessons. I really got into it and gradually got to a respectable intermediate level. But, after I graduated, I took many years off. When I joined MTG, I gradually got more and more into the sport and now I would love to play 5 times a week, if possible. Alas, life prevents that volume of play, but I play as much as I can.
