Education & Certifications:
I am currently enrolled at SUNY Broome, pursuing a career in diagnostic sonography. I am American Red Cross CPR/AED/First Aid certified, and formerly lifeguard certified.
I swam competitively in middle/high school for seven years, specifically 200 IM, 100 backstroke, and 100 breaststroke. I also lifeguarded for four years, and taught swim lessons for two years (ages 3-7).
Painting is my favorite thing to do! I paint on canvas, and I paint plant pots for the countless plants I have in my home.
Why did you go into Aquatics instruction?
I grew up on the St. Lawrence River and had been swimming for as long as I can remember! I spent my summers on the river or swimming in a pool almost daily. As soon as I could join the swim team, I did, and as soon as I could get lifeguard certified, I did. Being comfortable and having fun in the water is extremely important to me, and something I plan to pass on to my son, or anyone else I’m teaching!
