Maya Biesterfeld

A former level 9 national champion gymnast, injuries forced Maya to retire from gymnastics at just 13. But that sport’s loss was everyone else’s gain: Maya found tennis in her freshman year of high school and quickly became a USTA Missouri Valley tournament player.

In college she played for Maryville University and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science. She’s also a certified strength and conditioning specialist.

At FRC since 2015, Maya spent four years working with Stefan Kruger at Westwood in the summer and is now the Warson Woods Director of Tennis.
