Professional Poker player and coach
#1 Player of the Year 2019

For over a decade I have been a professional poker player, playing some of the highest stake games that poker has ever known. I was ranked as the #1 female in the world at the World Series of Poker in 2019 for number of cashes. From playing face to face with the best players in the world, to multi-tabling dozens of games online simultaneously, as a game theory expert and professional poker coach I am excited to share with you the secrets, tips, tricks, and strategy techniques I have learned with my life long experience in the sport of poker.

Whereas my poker journey has been incredibly surreal in many ways, I have also undergone many struggles throughout my career. These experiences have taught me the emotional, physical and strategic tools I needed to be one of the best poker players in the world, and make a living beyond my wildest dreams in a sport that I love. I can teach you poker strategy, how to build mental character, how to get yourself in optimal physical health with my nutrition and workout plans, and how to succeed in poker, or in any other path your heart desires!
