Meet Our Staff

Briana King

Briana grew up in (picturesque) upstate New York and graduated from SUNY Binghamton. After a couple of years in (not-so-picturesque to a college grad) upstate New York, she enrolled in Rutgers Law School in (not picturesque at all) Newark, New Jersey. She spent the next 6+ years working (slaving away) as a corporate tax lawyer in New York law firms (silver lining, it’s where she met her husband). She successfully escaped Big Law in 2005 and went to work for Ingersoll Rand Co. (again practicing tax law) in Piscataway, New Jersey.

After (finally) discovering that there is more to life than tax (like tennis and group fitness!), Briana teamed up with her neighbor (and good friend) Sara Reeder and (amazing) tennis pro, Michael Romeo to buy Murray Hill. She currently lives in Summit, NJ with her husband, son, daughter, horse, dogs, cat, hermit crab and fish.

Sara Reeder

Sara is possibly tennis’ biggest fan (and she is undoubtedly Murray Hill’s!) The opportunity to assistant coach for Drew University during spring 2015 was a pivotal experience. Becoming part of a tennis and fitness community sparked a desire to transform her longtime passion into a lifetime career. That dream became a reality when Sara (and Briana and Mike) purchased Murray Hill Tennis & Fitness. These days she can often be found in the office strategizing ways to better the club, or on court (with Briana) strategizing how to win their next point.

Sara happily resides in Summit, NJ with her husband Tyler, their three children, and Murray, their Wheaton terrier. She is a native Minnesotan and former corporate lawyer. As of 2016 she is PTR Certified.
