I have been swimming since I could walk. I grew up around a lake with all my cousins. When I was younger, I couldn’t have cared less what temperature the water was. My cousins and I were in the lake from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and sometimes even later into the year. I swam and dove competitively for Ralston High School, and it was there that I started my career as a swim teacher.
I teach because I love kids. I firmly believe that every child should know how to swim, as it is a life skill that saves lives. My journey at Swimtastic started in 2006, two days after I graduated from high school over 12 years ago! I’ve watched my kids grow into competitive swimmers (YAY!), soccer players, horseback riders, softball and baseball players, and everything else in between. I love to start with toddlers and watch them grow and blossom into bright young men and women; I can say this now as I’ve had the pleasure of working with 3 kids that I taught during my first year at Swimtastic. I fell in love with these kids and their families, and nothing makes me prouder than seeing them accomplish great things, both in and out of the pool.
