Upon graduation, Kady participated in Teach for America, a national service corps committed to teaching in under-resourced communities and fulfilling her two-year commitment at John F.

Half the staff were experienced players/coaches
July 18, 2017: Half of the camp staff were experienced players/coaches and were skilled at providing tips on improvements to our game, but the other half were very young and seemed timid about this aspect. There was a limited amount of quality feedback whenever you were on a court with the "youngsters".
— Mark M. Camper
I would definitely recommend this camp!
August 14, 2017: Kady was amazing, she is a great instructor. She gave great analogies and clear and concise instruction on how to improve your game. Her knowledge, experience and love of the game added great value to this camp. Tony, Emily and Chris were also great, they had excellent feedback and made the camp very fun. The drills were both fun and helped improved my game. All instructors were able to create a fun environment while improving your game. This camp got me excited to get back into my tennis game, which I needed! I would definitely recommend this camp!

July 16, 2015: Charlotte Sutcliffe, Kady Pooler and Tony were energetic, motivating, well-spoken and communicated technical skills in an understandable fashion.
