I like to have fun so I try to incorporate my sense of humor while teaching, which results in a fun time for both me and my swimmer. But when it comes to challenges, I am serious about those and I like to push my students to do things that they might not believe they can do. Even though I can often be laid back, I am serious about helping my students achieve goals and overcome challenges in swimming. I swam on a local club swim team from 6th grade to my senior year of high school. I also swam all four years for my high school team as well. However, I've been in pools since the 2nd grade when my parents signed me up for swim lessons.
