Ciara Finucane just completed her first season as the assistant coach of women's tennis at the University of Pennsylvania. She came to Penn from Case Western Reserve University where she also served as an assistant coach.

In her first season at Penn, Finucane helped coach the Ivy League Rookie of the Year.

Originally from Ireland, Finucane represented her home country from 2000-2007 as part of the National Tennis Team. She was ranked No. 1 in Ireland under-16 and under-18 during that time and traveled extensively throughout Europe playing competitive tennis before coming to the United States.
