I learned to play tennis at the age of 8 and competed in local club tournaments  in Buffalo, NY soon after. Sports were a large part of my youth as I competed in basketball and swimming as well, but tennis was always my favorite. I was #1 singles and #1 doubles throughout all of high school. I won the Western New York Sectional Doubles' Championships in 7th grade, advancing to the NY statewide finals that year, and again in 11th grade. I continued to play tennis in college at the University of Rochester in upstate NY, a Division III collegiate program. I taught tennis at The Country Club of Buffalo and a local public parks program during the summer months of college. After graduating with a Bachelor's of Economics, I've focused on post-grad full time employment but tennis continues to be a passion. The past two years I travelled on the ATP Challenger and Tour Level with my boyfriend, a top ATP ranked Singles and Doubles player.

Jill teaches at Ocean View & Marine Courts!

Ocean View - You can’t get closer to the beach than this! The home base for Dial Jones Tennis Academy is located directly across the street from one of Santa Monica’s most popular beach spots. Palm trees peak out over the fences and sunken courts reduce the effects of wind. Refuel after your lesson with lunch at Perry’s Café, or take in some unique Southern California beach culture with a stroll down Venice Beach Boardwalk, both within easy walking distance!
