Debbie Wasik

After 25 years as Creative Director of her family’s marketing firm, Debbie has cut back on her business commitments to enjoy life and teach bridge, a longtime avocation.

“I love teaching bridge – seeing layer upon layer of my knowledge and experience being applied like frosting on a cake. There’s nothing more exhilarating than seeing the look on a student’s face when he or she ‘gets it’.”


Mani Gupta

Dr. Mani Gupta, PhD, took an early retirement from a corporate career to teach bridge full time. “I like to teach and emphasize the basis to start, but move on to teaching “The Law”. It gives me great pleasure to see my students grow in confidence and become skillful players.”  A Gold Life master with over 4500 MPs, Mani has won many Regional events and has been teaching bridge for 10+ years. He uses interactive methods and provides notes on topics covered.
