As a swimmer and water polo player for Yucaipa Swim Team and Yucaipa Water Polo, I grew to love the water sports.  The years of experience at YST made it possible for me to swim and play polo at Yucaipa High School, then for a time at Riverside Community College.  I began coaching for Yucaipa Swim Team in the Starfish program, and I coached at Riverside Community College swim program for 2 years. I began coaching full time for YST in December, 2013 and it has been my passion to encourage my swimmers to always work to achieve their best.

I have been a swimmer my entire life, I was a NCAA Division 2 Champion in the 100 breaststroke for the University of California San Bernardino.  I have been coaching since 1990, much of that time spent at Riverside Aquatics Association (15) and Corona Swim Club (10).  Five years ago, after surviving a stroke, I began a coaching career with Yucaipa Swim Team.  I enjoy coaching and relationships I have with the Master Swimmers.
