Early lifeEdit

Moulton Levy's mother is Dr. Paulette Moulton, a dermatologist, and her father is Dr. George Levy, a record-setting sprinter at Nebraska who competed in the 1972 Munich Olympics in the 100 and 4x100, and who is now an ear, nose and throat doctor.[1][2] She was born in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, and has three sisters.[3][4][5][6]

CollegeEdit

Moulton-Levy went to Aiglon College, an international boarding school in Switzerland. She played in college at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia from 2004 to 2008. She was a four-time Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Women's Tennis Player of the Year; this four-time player of the year selection marked her as only the second athlete, regardless of sport or gender, to ever sweep such an award in the CAA's history. Her three selections as the CAA Tournament MVP are also the most ever. Moulton-Levy was also a six-time All-American who reached the semifinals of the 2006 NCAA Singles Championship and the finals of the 2007 NCAA Doubles Championship. Finally, she twice received the National ITA/Arthur Ashe, Jr. Award for Leadership and Sportsmanship. She won the most combined singles and doubles matches in school history (249).[2]
