Alberto Fernandez began his career as tennis pro with the Greater Miami Tennis and Education Foundation, exposing tennis to underprivileged children. Soon after, Alberto accepted a pro position with the City of Miami, where he also took on the challenge of wheelchair tennis, and high performance juniors where a vast majority has received tennis scholarships to play in division 1 or division 2 Universities. Following that Albert directed his own city junior program and kick-started the first adult program in the greater Miami area.

In 2008 Alberto joined the Miami Dade Fire Dept. as an EMT. Upon finishing his paramedics’ degree, Alberto was promoted to Officer in Charge. 

Prior to his current role at Weston Racquet Club, Alberto has held numerous positions with CDT across the country.
