FINIS, a world leader in technical swimming products that maximize your fitness potential and technique, announces Colleen Healy as the new Custom Sales Support Specialist. Healy has a strong background in swimming, both as an athlete and working professional. Her role at FINIS will be to manage the company’s growing Customization line of suits, caps and apparel.
Healy’s swimming career started at age six and she continued to pursue the sport throughout college. While swimming for Swim Florida, she became a 2-time Florida High School State Champion in the 100 fly and runner-up in the 100 back. Healy attended the University of Florida where she competed in U.S. Nationals, three SEC Championships and qualified for Olympic Trials in 2008. In her senior year, Healy was part of a SEC record-setting 200-medley relay, and qualified for the NCAA championships in 6 events. She ended her swimming career as a 3-time All-American and 1st team All-SEC.
More recently, Healy has coached for Gator Swim Club in Gainesville, Florida, and Olympic Cascade Aquatics in Seattle, Washington. Healy also has professional experience in the swimming industry that she brings to FINIS.
“I am excited to join FINIS because they are constantly looking to improve the way we swimmers train and race. I look forward to contributing to the growth of the company and being a part of a well-connected team,” said Healy.
Healy has a bachelor and masters degree in Sports Management from the University of Florida.
Founded in 1993 in Northern California, FINIS was started by John Mix and Olympic Gold Medal Swimmer Pablo Morales. The Monofin and the Swimmer’s Snorkel were the first products they developed for the US market; afterwards, they continued to focus on creating training tools for swimmers and coaches worldwide. FINIS products are currently available in over 65 countries and are used by US and International Olympic teams, elite triathletes, and fitness swimmers.
Innovative research and design is FINIS’ highest priority. This dedication has resulted in truly unique products such as: the Swimmer’s Snorkel, which is recognized as the paramount tool to improve a swimmer’s technique, the SwiMP3 that uses bone conduction technology to play music instead of using ear buds, and the Z2 Zoomers fins, which demonstrate an intimate understanding of swimming musculature, hydrodynamics, and engineering.
