A little about me:
I always felt that it was such a shame I wasn’t born with gills because being in the water is where I thrive the most! Everything about swimming makes me happy. After swimming for over 20 years, I can still confidently say that whether it is in the ocean or a pool, swimming is one of my favorite activities, and that I feel truly at peace in the water. I started lessons as just a baby, and my love for swim grew from there. I swam on teams every summer, and when I was 11, I began year-round competitive swim with a few different USA teams, in addition to my high school varsity team.

I am a very positive and outgoing person, with just a splash of goofiness. I thrive on the energy of others, and I strongly believe in constructive feedback. I also believe that there is no shame in starting something new, because everybody starts somewhere, and no one is perfect! I love to teach swim lessons because I personally believe it is a crucial life skill, and that no one is too old or too young to learn swim. It is an incredibly healthy activity, with very low impact on our bodies, and just plain fun! My teaching style is enthusiastic and informative. I believe that most people learn by doing, therefore demonstration and repetition are my best and most frequently used methods.

Like I mentioned earlier, I truly believe that no one is too young, too old, or too new to learn how to swim. It is always my goal to make every new swimmer feel comfortable working with me, as well as being comfortable in the water. I am patient, understanding, and adaptive to each individual swimmer’s needs. I believe that survival skills such as treading water and floating on ones back are the most important to learn prior to learning individual strokes.

I motivate my younger students with games and rewards. Reiterating positivity and moving forward with an accomplished feeling always motivates my students to keep going. I am always open to working with someone who may need a specific approach to doing certain things! I like to meet the goals of all parents, and I do this with positive reinforcement, patience, and of course, great communication. It can be very manageable to meet everyone’s goals, as long as realistic expectations are set and the student learns to share my passion for the water.

I have Red Cross Lifeguard & CPR certifications, as well as First-Aid training. I also have USA Swim Team assistant-coaching experience, along with summer swim team coaching in the Mercer County area. I look forward to meeting all my students and their families. We are going to learn a lot and have fun while we learn!
