BIO

Hi Everyone, My family often jokes with me that I knew how to swim freestyle before I knew how to walk. I have an extensive background in both competing & coaching swimming. I have 6 years experience teaching children, ages 2-5 how to swim & over 20 years experience coaching competitive swimming. I currently work for a private girls school in Manhattan called Nightingale Bamford where I’m the head swim coach for the 5th & 6th grade. 7th & 8th grade & varsity teams. I was just awarded the AAIS coach of the year & the Nightingale Bamford coach of the year.I’ve been competing in swimming since I was 5 years old. I excelled in the freestyle & butterfly events. I won 5 Westchester County summer league championships in the freestyle, & butterfly events. I’ve competed in Nationals & Junior Olympics in 50yd & 100yd freestyle. I swam & play water polo in division one at Iona College. I compete in triathlons & love to surf & wakeboard. I love the sport of swimming & I’m great teaching children or adults at any age.
