Toddi grew up on a 75’ boat mostly docked at Orcas Island, Washington. She played basketball while earning her AA degree in education and then met her husband, Brian. They enjoy outdoor adventures like wakeboarding, hiking and biking along with competing on softball teams together. Eventually, they added two kids to the family. For six months, she ‘lost’ her husband to pickleball so she decided to check out why he always came home late and just had to play ‘one more game.’ Finding herself completely hooked, they traveled the entire Pacific Northwest playing tournaments and started scheduling vacations around the tournaments. This included competing in Nationals at Indian Wells, CA in 2018 and 2019 before Covid changed the world. In need of a change and new adventure, they decided on the Dallas, TX area after some research and exploration. Toddi and Brian fell in love with the welcoming people at Oasis Pickleball Club and beautiful courts. Next came the house and big move. She became a certified PPR coach, combining her love of teaching, her pickleball experience, and her desire to help others discover and grow their pickleball journey.
