BIO

I was a competitive swimmer for 15 years. I qualified for the olympics and lost career as a competitive swimmer due to an injury. I have been a triathlete, swim coach, lifeguard, swim instructor for ALL ages.

The secret to swimming, is to trust yourself and to trust the water. your body is made of 80% water. Its meant to be in a body of water. we are meant to float and be agile without the weight of the world on us.

I have a decade of experience.  I feel comfortable teaching newborns to hold their breath all the way up to professional athletes tweaking their stroke to perfection. I have the patience of a goddess! I use various floating toys, noodles, kickboards, pull bouy, sinking objects, goggles etc. for enhanced teaching strategies.

I am currently a body builder. I know the limits a body can be pushed to. I also have compassion and know special ways to overcome fears (water, deep end,drowning,suffocating,dark etc.)

I have a large pool at my house with a deep end. I can teach an individual including dogs how to tread water, swim laps hold their breath, blow bubbles from their nose etc. My pool starts at 3 inches and goes to 10 feet. If you don’t have a pool i am always willing to use mine if it will save lives or bring a new hobby to someone life. I have swim outs ( ledges) every 4 feet around the perimeter of the pool for for those who need to take a rest or feel uncomfortable.
I have 2 dogs I taught to swim and built their endurance.
