Favorite Memories of Swimming:
My favorite memories of swimming are with my family. My dad would take us swimming all the time-6 children by himself!! He made sure all of knew how to swim and had a love of water like himself. He took us to swim lessons, we swam in pools, lakes, oceans, everywhere. I suppose that passion that I have for swimming and teaching started a long time ago swimming with my dad.

Favorite Part of Teaching Swim Lessons:
Watching a swimmer accomplish something new is my favorite. Swimming isn’t easy, it is a very physically demanding activity and for some bringing great fear. Seeing a child accomplish putting their face in for the first time and realizing it is okay, or finally getting that patch they have been working on- these are special moments.
