Cyndi has a life time USTA membership since 1995, and has over twenty years of experience working with USTA.  In the past year, she represented the Grand Strand Tennis Association as their Junior Team Tennis League Coordinator and the South Carolina Junior Team Tennis Committee Chair for USTA Southern. 


Before moving to South Carolina in 2018, Cyndi was the USTA Junior Team Tennis local league coordinator for Miami Dade County.  She held this position for USTA Florida for over 12 years and was also recognized as the USTA Florida Junior Team Tennis Coordinator of the Year in 2009.   Two of her local teams competed in the National Championships held in Cayce, South Carolina and Lake Nona, Florida where she accompanied them as their team manager.

In fact, two of her Miami teams will be representing Florida in the upcoming National Championships here in San Antonio!


In the past 12 years, Cyndi has been a USTA Tournament Director running various level junior sanctioned tournaments in South Florida.  She served as secretary for Friends of Miami Tennis, CTA for 8 years, and different committees on the South Dade YMCA board for 5 years.  Cyndi became the Director of Tennis in Palmetto Bay while Friends of Miami Tennis managed Coral Reef Park.


Graduating from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor’s degree in Education, Cyndi has taught middle school age children from private, public and charter schools in South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.


Cyndi is very excited to join the SATA team and hopes her experience and educational background will enhance SATA’s mission by helping NJTL and growing tennis throughout San Antonio.
