BIO

I have been working as a lifeguard and swim instructor for the past seven years. My previous experience has been at a summer daycamp in NJ working with typically developing children between the ages of three and 12. I also have experience working with children on the autism spectrum and with other developmental disabilities. My approach to swimming is comprehensive and personalized, and I make every effort to break down the skills into their smaller components to make learning easy and fun. I have a background in Psychology and am currently pursuing my Master’s degree in Applied Behavior Analysis, and currently work with children with developmental disabilities. My background definitely helps me to better personalize lessons and to make sure that your child is learning as best as he or she can. I am energetic, personable and am always flexible and able to work closely with you and your child to ensure that our instructional time is maximized!
