Why you serve on the FWTEC board: When I was introduced to the mission of the Fort, I was really impressed with what it was set to accomplish: making tennis accessible and using tennis as a medium to inspire youth and teach life-long skills. It combined a worthy cause with my love of the sport. I was also impressed with the quality of the tennis facility, tennis programs and especially the staff. Therefore, I wanted to contribute toward this mission by serving on the board.
