Personal vision:
“Enjoy your lessons, it is a journey. Do not compare yourself to others, simply celebrate your own accomplishments and help others celebrate theirs.”


Having grown up in the heat of East Africa, swimming was the only
sport that didn’t leave you overheated. I joined the school swim team
there and continued swimming at the student swimming association when I moved to Leiden.

Apart from teaching swimming and doing lots of swimming myself I study International Studies at Leiden University.

Coaching Style:

As both a swimmer and coach, I have had the most success by implementing fun and creative techniques.

I think the best way to learn and have fun is to trust your coach and trust your swimmer.


To combine teaching with fun and my experience as a swimmer before becoming a coach.
