Discovering the Buzz

In the sun-drenched city of Boca Raton, I’ve discovered a new passion: pickleball! This lively sport, blending elements of badminton, table tennis, and tennis, has quickly become a local craze. It’s the perfect mix of fun, social interaction, and physical activity for all ages.

As a Realtor, I realized I was sitting at my computer and simply not moving enough daily…something many entrepreneurs deal with.

I am also an empty nester and in the 60th chapter of my life…it is important according to The Blue Zones Secrets To Living Longer to move, to eat better and healthier, and have community to live a longer and healthier life. So I decided to change that stat!

Thus, after some research, I decided that pickleball might just be perfect for me. So stay tuned and join me on my pickleball journey as I take my first swings and learn the ropes of this engaging sport.
