I am a happily married ex-swimmer from London, England. I swam competitively for over 10 years competing both nationally and internationally.
I have a 20 year old daughter, Hannah, that has been swimming since before she can even remember and floating before she was even walking. She was a competitive swimmer and is currently in her last few months at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy training to become an officer in the Coast Guard. I also have a 23 year old stepson that enjoys swimming in many Special Olympic events.
I was a lead teacher in a Montessori School for 17 years and have therefore had a lot of experience with young children. This has given me the tools to deal with many different personalities. I am very loving, strong, and motivating which allows me bond quickly with the children helping the learning process.
For past 14 years, I have tought hundreds of children to be safe and confident in and around the water. A 2 year old student of mine that had been taught these water safety techniques some 10 months before, fell into a freezing cold, muddy pond and used his newly acquired skills to save himself in a situation that could easily have ended in a horrific tragedy. It has been because of amazing incidences like that and the joy of that little boy’s parents that I have dedicated myself in the mission to ensure that every child has water safety skills!
