Lindsay has always been active and athletic. She grew up in Minnesota where she spent many winters enjoying the beautiful weather cross country skiing and snowboarding. Lindsay picked up long-distance running as a teenager and has been running ever since. She has trained for and completed 6 marathons including Grandma’s Marathon in Duluth, MN, Twin Cities Marathon in St.Paul/Minneapolis, MN (x2), Miami Marathon in Miami, FL, Ojai to Ocean in Ojai California and Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in Phoenix/Tempe, AZ. Although running is her passion, Lindsay enjoys a variety of physical activities and is always looking for opportunities to try something new. In her early twenties, Lindsay decided to take up golf and invested many hours on the range, on various Minnesota and Wisconsin golf courses and with a private instructor in order to develop her skills in golf. As a result, she has enjoyed many years of golfing as an adult and still enjoys getting out on the course at Phoenix Country Club (PCC) where she and her husband are members. In 2020, Lindsay had an itch to try something new and enlisted her husband Mike to try a tennis clinic at PCC. Neither one of them had ever picked up a tennis racquet but after a couple of clinics, they were both hooked. Lindsay has private tennis lessons and attends multiple tennis clinics every week including cardio tennis, triples clinics and Tennis 201 at PCC. She gets on the court by
4:30a every morning to hit on the ball machine and is fully committed to developing her skills in tennis. She looks forward to many years enjoying this life-long sport.
Lindsay and her husband Mike live in Central Phoenix with their two children, Beckham (8) and Selah (7). They enjoy playing golf and tennis together as a family at Phoenix Country Club.
North High School
Girl’s Tennis Coach
An Arizona native, Coach Miller started playing and coaching tennis in 2020. She is the girls’ head tennis coach at North High School and also teaches Physical Education at North. Prior to falling in love with tennis, Miller was a collegiate club lacrosse coach for six years at Arizona State University and Grand Canyon University.
Coach Miller holds a BBA in Sports Management from Tiffin University, where she also played NCAA DII Lacrosse and tennis for fun; a M.S in Exercise Science from Concordia University Irvine; and a MEd in Secondary Education from Grand Canyon University. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, camping and laying out by the pool.
Her coaching philosophy is: I am a firm believer that if you have knowledge pass it on to those who do not. I also believe that playing sports not only builds character and confidence but also gives a sense of accomplishment. It also prepares students for life, teaching them about working as a team and how to manage their emotions as individuals. I like to remind my athletes that it’s about the journey vs the destination. Athletes of all ages nurture more fully when they see this in their coaches and I try my best to mirror that.
