Jacob Hansen

Tennis Professional - Peter Burwash International (PBI)

Jacob Hansen, a Southern California native, is a tennis professional with Peter Burwash International (PBI), the world's premier tennis management company. Before joining Silverado, Jacob spent three years in Florida, serving as Head Tennis Professional at the Naples Grande Beach Resort, A Waldorf Astoria Resort. During Jacob's tenure there, Tennis Magazine rated the Naples Grande as the #8 Tennis Resort in the country, and TennisResortsOnline ranked it among the world's Top 25. The promotion, expansion and administration of such a varied program have provided Jacob a wealth of experience in both club and hotel tennis programming. These experiences include lessons, clinics, junior programs, league teams, tennis packages, USTA tournaments and a full calendar of tennis social and competitive events.

In coming to Silverado, Jacob saw the opportunity to continue to combine his loves for teaching tennis and providing excellent customer service. Jacob has also worked at other PBI sites including The Lake Club at Reynolds Plantation in Georgia, and The Lake George Club in Diamond Point, NY. Prior to joining PBI, he graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in Economics. While attending school, he also enjoyed working in sales and customer service positions, and was a $25,000 winner of the Humboldt County Student Business Challenge, a business plan competition for college students. However, upon graduation, he chose to pursue a career in his first passion -- tennis. Jacob became a PTR (Professional Tennis Registry) certified instructor, and gained experience teaching students of all ages and abilities, as well as coaching the local high school team.

Her PBI career has included five seasons as a professional at JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in California, which is consistently ranked by Tennis magazine as one of the top ten tennis resorts in the country.

The seasonal nature of this assignment has given Katie the opportunity to take on positions such as twice directing the summer tennis program at The Homestead, Virginia’s historic five-diamond resort, where she was responsible for instruction and programs for hotel guests and members, as well as directing convention group tournaments. Other PBI assignments have included the One&Only Kanuhura in the Maldives, Kapalua in Hawaii and the Four Seasons Resort Nevis in the Caribbean.

She so enjoyed the experience that she chose to pursue a career in tennis upon graduation.

Quinn Saine
Tennis Professional - Peter Burwash International (PBI)

Quinn Saine’s love for tennis originated in his hometown of Peru, Indiana. This is where his father and grandfather ran successful boys and girls high school tennis programs, as well as junior summer tennis programs for those based near Peru. Both are now both members of the Indiana High School Coaches Hall of Fame. So yes, tennis is actually in his blood.

Quinn combined his desire to travel and keep tennis consistent in his life when he went to work with PBI’s amazing world-wide staff of tennis professionals after competing as an NCAA Division I scholarship athlete with the Hilltoppers of Western Kentucky.

Quinn has had the opportunity to have fun on the court with peewees, hitting sessions with America’s top junior competitors at the Easter Bowl, group teaching, camps and wheelchair tennis players.

Tennis has afforded Quinn many travel opportunities-from catching waves in the Hawaiian Islands to climbing the Wilder Kaiser mountains in Austria. Aside from tennis Quinn loves to be out with his camera taking photos of his adventures around the world.
