"I would highly recommend Nelly for anyone seeking to develop their child into a national level athlete or to take their game to the next level."

"I worked with Nelly in Vancouver as the Tennis Director at UBC. Nelly is dedicated pro who cares about her students. Her coach eduction along with her playing background make her a natural teacher." 

- Neil Parker

"Nelly is constantly looking to grow and develop her coaching abilities. It's incredible how many coaches stagnant and keep doing the same old things.


Not Nelly, she is constantly growing and developing. This shows her commitments to her students and her love of the game."
