What is your paddle of choice?

The Viking Reignite Lite 2015.


How long have you been playing paddle?

I started playing paddle in 2014 so about 6 years.


What is your favorite part of playing paddle?

This aspect has changed for me over the years. When I first started, I loved winning. That is all I wanted to do and it was definitely my favorite part. These days, I love just being on the court with my friends. It’s a wonderful break from the hustle and bustle of life.


Your greatest paddle strength?

I’d guess my spin? I think my lefty spin takes opponents awhile to adjust to playing against.


What is your best paddle memory?

Definitely Philadelphia Nationals! I was pregnant with my first child while playing my first Presidents Cup. I also took home a huge trophy because Spencer Caravaggio and I won the Last Reprieve draw.


What do you enjoy when you’re not playing paddle?

Taking care of my two beautiful babies.


Do you have any pre-match rituals?

My pre-match ritual is usually unpacking my son’s toys and explaining to the person watching him all the things he likes to play with. Then I quickly run away to play.


What advice would you give to beginners?

My advice would be to learn to love the screens. It took me 3 years to fully appreciate the art of the screens. However, now that I feel confident using them, paddle is a lot more fun.
