A new transplant to the south (six years) and a former Wall Street trader from New York, Lisa came to Georgia as a longtime tennis instructor. The first day she saw a group playing pickleball she was hooked. The rest is history, as they say .

Certified to teach for over four years and an avid pickleball tournament participant,  Lisa has won over 75 medals in the past few years.  With a love of the sport and a penchant for exercise (a ten time marathon participant) she is super excited to be teaching at Odell Weeks and Gregg Park, and looks forward to bringing back some laughter to the sport!   Her focus is on strategy, how to be defensive, and turning defense to offense. She feels you don’t have to be the best person on the court, you have to be the smartest!   

 LBJ will  assist Mo with New Players Clinics at Odell Weeks and conduct her own New Players Clinics at Gregg Park.   Email address is
