Brief info

How long at CAC? I have been at Cascade since January 2012, so 3 and a half years. I am just a rookie compared to some of the "old timers".

What is your job title? Director of Tennis at CAC Gresham

What is your job description? To help tennis players of all ages have a great time on the tennis courts, become the best players they can, and get fit while doing it.

How did you start at CAC? I moved cross country from Pittsburgh PA to join the Cascade family as the Director of Tennis in 2012

What is your favorite fitness quote? I have 2--"love is nothing in tennis, but in life it's everything" AND "When I was 40, my doctor advised me that a man in his 40s shouldn't play tennis. I heeded his advice carefully and could hardly wait until I reached 50 to start again."

Hobbies: Spending time with family, reading, biking, hiking

Education: Bachelor of Arts in Business from The George Washington University in Washington DC.

Fun Facts: Born and raised in Stockholm Sweden where all my family except my sister (Portsmouth, England) still live. Growing up, tennis legend Bjorn Borg's parents owned a convenience store one block from where we lived and we got to play tennis with him at the local park. Bjorn would help the kids in the neighborhood shoplift candy out of his parents store (of course I will deny everything if asked). I was once ranked #1,453 in the world. I always wanted to be a rodeo clown, but am allergic to make up.
