My first time in the pool was with only six months. In kindergarten I started swimming all throughout primary but it wasn’t until I was 12 that I started to enjoy it – when I chose to join a swim team. Ever since I have been competing with a club or the school and even attended international meets. In high school I was captain of the varsity team and also coached the junior varsity team and the little kids. This was a great opportunity for me not only to be able to share my skills but also bringing the swimmers closer and make sure that everyone was enthusiastic about coming to the pool.


Coaching Style

In the pool we might all swim together but it is for ourselves. Feeling safe and enjoying the time inside the pool is a very important to boost motivation and get closer to our personal goals. I happily adapt to all swimmers, as it is essential to give everyone a chance at getting confortable and pushing their limits, and this is why you will be encouraged by me at all times. As a coach I will make sure everyone feels accomplished when hopping out of the pool each class and ready to come back for more challenges!



I enjoy transmitting my love for swimming and the pool to all swimmers by guiding them every step of the way. Whether it is their first time getting in the water, or working on strength and stamina. No matter at what stage of the journey each one is, keeping their head in the game is very important. The hardest step is deciding and wanting to become better, after that it’s important we keep telling ourselves that we can do it all!
