Hello! My name is Stephanie & I love working with children! I kind of got thrown into swim lessons in 2007 when I was the Children’s Program Director at Club La Maison in Wayne, PA. Whenever an instructor couldn’t make it into work, I got in the pool to teach. I ended up really loving teaching & found I had a knack with swimming lessons. After that, I was a Pool Director at a Girl Scout summer camp, running lessons once again. With my newly acquired water certifications, I got a job at a local YMCA. I have been lifeguarding & teaching swim at the YMCA since 2009. I love being a part of the YMCA family! Other than swimming, I am also in a nursing program at Gwynedd-Mercy University in Gwynedd Valley, PA. I hope to further my career working with children by becoming a pediatric nurse one day. Between my lifeguarding, swim teaching & nursing backgrounds, I can provide a fun and safe swim lesson experience for your child. I look forward to a fun summer in the water!
I have the following certifications: CPR, AED, First Aid, Oxygen Administration, Lifeguard (ARC). I have been a lifeguard since 2004. I have been teaching swim since 2007. I have been an aquatics manager in multiple facilities. I am a nursing student and learning to care for a wide facet of patients. (I recently finished my pediatric rotation!) I have my undergraduate degree in Exercise Science & Health Promotion & have a firm background in health & fitness. I have baby-sat & nannied for many families & have much experience working with children.
All ages and abilities, beginners to adults. especially ages about 3-6 years.
