Coaching Experience:
Since 1989, has combined coaching experiences for NVSL, PMSL and military swim teams. 
Current Head Coach of High Point Swim Club, NVSL
Former Head Coach of Little Hunting Park, Mansion House, Severn Crossing, Bolling Air Force Base and Sasebo, Japan Swim Teams.
Education:

Job(s):
Former Special Education Teacher, Oxon Hill Middle School & St. Coletta School, Arlington, VA
  
Description:
A home-grown product of  NVSL, Michelle learned how to swim "late" at the ripe old age of 10.  Within 2 years she was swimming for local PVS teams, and within 4 years she found herself coached by none other than Greg York at her first Zone Championship - just a stepping stone on the beautiful swimming path she forged for herself (with the help of some of the greatest coaches EVER!
Despite enjoying National Level status, All-Star Champion medals and multiple CAA wins at James Madison University, Michelle remains sentimental when discussing developmental swimming:  "Swimming is a sport that builds more than strong bodies.  It teaches discipline, molds character, fosters responsibility, and builds friendships that can last a lifetime." 
Michelle stresses the importance of learning the fundamentals early and correctly.  The more technically sound your stroke, the easier it is to get across the pool.  And who doesn’t want to get across the pool faster?!?  Efficiency not only decreases your times, it also decreases your risk of injury. 
Currently on sabbatical from teaching to raise her 3 daughters, perfect her culinary skills and train for Olympic Distance triathlons, Michelle joined the YORK team to help foster enthusiasm and a love of swimming in the children she coaches.

COACHING/SWIM BACKGROUND

I grew up swimming for the Lee-Graham dolphins, from age 7-18. (I saw the big pool being built!) I became an assistant coach of the dolphins and later moved over to Lake Vale Estates followed by a position as the assistant coach at High Point. After a move to San Diego, CA in the early 80s I became head coach for the Freedom Park Sharks. Later, I joined York Winter Swim at Yorktown HS. and coached the Tuesday-Thursday afternoon practices.. I retired from coaching after being the head coach at Cardinal Hill.

Our family is a member of Poplar Heights Swim Recreation and I was a team Rep. for the CRUSH .

EDUCATION/WORK EXPERIENCE

Graduated from GMU with a B.S. in Education. I coached Field Hockey at West Springfield HS, taught kindergarten in Falls Church City, first grade in the diocese of San Diego, 1st & 3rd P.E. and music in the Diocese of Arlington at OLGC, St. Ann’s and St. Charles’.

I directed religious education at St. Charles, was a Youth Minister at St. Marks, St. Charles, and OLGC. I used to be a leader for Youth Encounter Retreats.

FAMILY

I am married to Scott, former assistant Principal at DJO, who is currently Dean of Boys and teacher at Trinity School at Meadow View and Head Varsity lacrosse coach. Scott also runs the tennis team for Poplar Heights. We have six wonderful kids, Brendan, Kelly, Lauri, Kristi, Brigid, and Drew, whom I was blessed to home school all until Junior High. One graduated from college and three are now attending colleges, one in High School and the last in his final year of homeschool.

WHAT DO I LIKE TO SEE IN A SWIMMER

A love for their family, team, the sport, tenacity to give their best in practice, and great team spirit.

I am looking forward to being back on the deck bringing out the BEST in the kids, working on their strokes, starts, finishes, turns, and love for the sport that puts them in the water year round! I have always loved the philosophy of the York Swim program and Bob’s true heart for the swimmers so it is a gift to be able to step back into the program.

Biography:

My entire childhood was spent swimming with the Oakton Otters and York Swim Club. After graduating from Madison High School in 2003, I headed to the University of Texas of Austin. Every summer, however, I returned to be the head coach of the Oakton Otters. My experience working with children in the pool inspired me to join the Teach For America movement to teach underprivileged students in a low income area. At the end of my program, I moved back to the Northern Virginia area to pursue my passion in politics in government. I have had the privilege of working on Captiol Hill for former Rep. Tom Perriello, and am currently working on the 2012 presidential campaign. In addition to coaching for York Swim Club, I also coach the Oakton High School swim and dive team. In 2012, the Oakton Cougars won the Girls Virginia AAA State Championship and the boys were runner up.
