BIO

I began swimming in pools, lakes, rivers, any water I could fine at a very young age and eventually got into competitive swimming which I devoted the next 10 years of my life to. I have since been a swim instructor for the past 4 years. I have worked with young infants to adults and every age in between. I have a great background knowledge of swimming and the essential fundamentals one must master to be successful. Whether you have never been in the water, are training for a triathlon or competitive swimming, or just want to improve your strokes and fitness I am capable of it all. I also have a variety of teaching experience out of the water. I am a certified teacher in Ontario and have begun working in primary classrooms around Ottawa, With my personal experience swimming as well as my extensive teaching experience I have had a lot of success teaching people to swim and I love doing it. Swimming is a great life skill to have and it would be my pleasure to help you along the way no matter where you are in your journey.
I am also a certified and experienced lifeguard. I have lifeguarded for the past 4 years and have dealt with many situations. I am always alert and proactive when on the job to ensure everyone remains safe and having fun.
