Lesson Coordinator - Corina Simms

Corina grew up in Ocean County, New Jersey where she swam for Ocean County YMCA Swim Team. Her love of the water began in her back yard swimming pool where she learned the water safety skills that continued throughout her life.  In high school, Corina became a certified lifeguard and she began teaching swimming lessons. In 1989, Corina graduated from Loyola University, and in 2007, she received her Personal Training Certification.  She has taught many types of fitness classes in and out the pool, but prefers aquatic fitness.   As a personal trainer, her focus has been on the benefits & rewards of aquatic physical training.  Teaching Water Safety is a high priority that Corina strives to share with people of all ages, especially children.

Corina joined the staff of Peddie Aquatics in the fall of 2012 as both a water exercise & swim lesson instructor. In the spring of 2015, Corina took her love for the water to the next level and became the "Lesson Coordinator" for the Peddie Swim School. She feels incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to share her passion with all  Peddie Swim School students and looks forward to a long future at the Peddie Pool.
