I am a 4.0 tournament player, IPTPA Certified and teaching pro at  Lucky Shots Pickleball Club; the new premier indoor pickleball club in Minneapolis. After playing for a few years I accidentally fell into teaching when a friend who managed the Eden Prairie Community Center, without warning, needed a replacement for his pickleball instructor...right away!  I hesitantly agreed and found that I loved teaching, coaching and drilling others who love my sport!  Soon after that I became Certified by IPTPA and have now been teaching since 2017 and I now teach pickleball around the SW Metro including Edina, Minnetonka, Richfield, St Louis Park, Bloomington and Lucky Shots Pickleball Club in Minneapolis. Pickleball can be a time for silly laughter, or to fulfill your desire to compete at a tournament level.  I help with whatever you want to achieve!  Friendship, exercise, competition and new friends; pickleball can change your life!


I live in Bloomington with my. husband Jim, am a grandma to 14 grandchildren, love to garden and often will bring my sweet puppy Hanna to the courts. She loves to watch and hang out with us!

I can't say enough about Pickleball...it has transformed my life in so many ways and I bet  that once you start you won't be able to stop! You'll be hooked like the rest of us!
