Excited to officially announce our push into the state of Florida! 

We're proud to welcome Miss Marie Berghaus to the team as our new Florida Recruiting Coordinator and also our National Director of Tennis!

Marie is a former college athlete that navigated her own recruiting process with very little support and guidance. Her perserverence through this process is one of the key things that drew us to her initially! Marie competed for & graduated from Erskine College in May 2020 with two Bachelor degrees. One in Business Administration and the other in Sports Management. Marie competed as an NCAA D2 student-athlete in tennis, cross country & track at Erskine, and went on to win the All-Conference award 3 semesters in a row! (Spring 2019 in Tennis, Fall 2019 in Cross Country & Spring 2020 in track) From there, Marie pursued higher eduation with Edinboro University in December 2022 and earned her Master's Degree in Business Administration, while also operating as the the Assistant Coach for Men's and Women's Tennis teams. She won the conference title with the men's program during those two years and made it to the NCAA National tournament round of "Sweet 16" in Orlando in 2022.

We're excited to have Marie on the ground in Florida and able to spread our local, hands-on message of nearly 3 decades now throughout her area while also getting to educate other athletes & families on the realities of this recruiting process and how to truly navigate through it successfully! Miss Berghaus is a quality young woman with a wonderful work ethic and sincere passion to help student-athletes navigate this recruiting process with our marketing, video and support system that delivers like none other in the industry!
