In this episode, I talk with Kasandra Gehrke who gave up her career as a physical education teacher to play professional Pickleball full time. Kasandra has a great story of how she transformed her game and body to become one of the top pros in the game.  She also explains a very interesting strategy to improve her game quickly and discusses how the game is changing.
