Owner and PPR Certified Pro Instructor for Pickleball Organized
Welcome to our website! We hope you find something here that will help get you involved in pickleball.
I come from an IT career of 20+ years in Geographic Information Systems. I worked in Environmental Engineering Companies such as Parsons Engineering, AECOM and Kennedy/Jenks Consultants to name a few. I have been an entrepreneur by heart and was always on the lookout for an opportunity that made sense to my skills. I never thought I would be able to utilize my sports skills as a business idea. It's actually a dream come true to be able to work and do what I love for fun at the same time. I started Pickleball Organized as a small idea mainly to create an identity and central place to organize many of my pickleball offerings.
I started playing in 2020, and like everyone else, was looking for an activity during Covid. Boy, I met the most amazing people ever and the best part about it is, they all became my family. Pickleball has changed my life! I now do everything related to it. I’m such an addict that I fractured my ankle in August 2021 and actually played in a boot for 2 months!
Rewind 35 years, I played ping pong in my basement with my older brother growing up. We used to battle it out. Since then, I've been an avid recreational ping pong player. 4 years later, I picked up tennis as a sport and made my jr high school team after just 2 months of playing. I’ve been playing high level competitive tennis ever since. I’ve been heavy into USTA League tennis and met wonderful people and made so many friends along the way.
In early 2022 I started playing in 4.5 and 5.0 level pickleball tournaments and also decided to get my certification in teaching pickleball. I received the Pro certification status. I have a passion for teaching fundamentals of pickleball at all levels and my tennis background helps me articulate stroke construction.
Pickleball is a special sport, like no other. It brings people from all walks of life, young or old, together. It brings happiness, joy and laughter that is just so addictive. It's hard to explain as it's a feeling... Come on out and join in on the fun!!
When I’m not playing or teaching pickleball, I’m hanging out with my 2 rescue pups, Milli and Zola. They are my world!
I hope to meet you and Let’s Dink Together!
