    "Today I had my first lesson with Mrs. Petra Cole, and I am so thankful that you recommended her to help me get my game to the next level! I spent just an hour with her today but I am 100% sure she is the person I need. I will be meeting with her weekly to get ready for my tournament season this summer. Thank you so very much!"
