As the assistant director of the Professional Tennis Management program at Methodist University in Fayetteville, N.C., since August 2012, Kaitlin Flaherty wears a lot of hats: teacher, academic adviser, recruiter, social media coordinator, player development instructor, and more. The Texas native graduated with honors from the PTM program in 2011 (she played No. 1 on the Methodist tennis team), then received an MBA from Methodist in December, with a concentration in Organizational Leadership. Among her honors and achievements, she is a USPTA-certified pro, was named Methodist’s woman athlete of the year for 2011- 2012, and recently was elected secretary/treasurer of the USPTA North Carolina Chapter board of directors. Flaherty also is heavily involved as a community tennis volunteer. “Kaitlin has done an absolutely wonderful job for Methodist,” says Tom Daglis, director of the Methodist PTM program.
