BIOGRAPHY


Brittany was diagnosed with Autism at an early age and regularly received a variety of therapies including occupational, speech, and physical. She began playing tennis at the age of 16 and was drawn to the sport as a result of watching her brother, A.J., compete.

Brittany has the competitive heart of a champion and the desire that burns within all world-class athletes to achieve their goals. These character traits serve her well as she refuses to allow her autism and its physical, mental, and communicative manifestations to keep her from pursuing her dream of becoming a World Champion Tennis Player.
