SCW Personal Training Certification, AFAA Group Fitness Instructor; Schwinn Indoor Cycling Instructor;
I enjoy working with a variety of different age groups and skill levels from babies to adults. I also have experience working with children with autism and special needs, including Special Olympics competitors. My coaching style is energetic and immersive, with a healthy splash of humor. I like to bring a smile to my students faces and instill confidence as they learn and progress. It is most rewarding for me as an instructor to see my student’s progress and ultimately assist them in achieving their goals!
My goal as an instructor is for the student to be comfortable in all parts of the water, whether it be the shallow end, the middle of the pool, or the very bottom of the nine-foot deep end. For the adults: It’s never too late to learn how to swim and to perfect their swimming. Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around for a while, you could miss it.
My love of aquatic activities began at a very young age. Growing up on the Georgia Coast and spending half the year in the ocean and pools and on boats, knowing how to swim was mandatory. My love for swimming has never stopped. I have been teaching and coaching swimming for more than 3 years now and have taught all sorts of ages and abilities including infants, special needs children, children/adults with extreme fear of water, triathletes and master swim classes.
A fitness and exercise enthusiast my entire life, I enjoy a wide variety of activities including triathlons, road cycling, swimming, working out at the gym, teaching cycle and group fitness, figure competitions, tennis, softball, track and field, mountain biking, basketball, jet-skiing, snow skiing and hiking.
