Coach Beth grew up in Racine, WI and fell in love with swimming at a young age. She started swimming competitively at age 7, and earned many Racine YMCA/Southeastern Aquatics records and high point meet awards. Throughout age group swimming, she specialized in IM, fly, breaststroke, and sprint freestyle and placed in the top 3 at YMCA States. She also competed at YMCA Nationals in a variety of events each year starting at 12 years old.
Beth swam her freshman year at Kenyon College in Ohio, the #1 ranked Division III swimming college. After transferring to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY, she continued to swim on the college team while completing a Bachelor in Architecture and Bachelor in Building Science.
Beth is currently an ASCA Level 2 coach and has over 17 years of experience working with a wide range of swimmers from beginners to National level athletes. In addition to being head coach of the Forest Lakes Swim team and assistant coach for the Cruiser Club team, she has 12 years of combined coaching experience at the West Morris Area YMCA/ Randolph Y, and 5 years at Sussex County Y. During the past few years as lead group coach for 11/12 year olds, she improved swimmer technique and conditioning greatly, which advanced many swimmers into the Y State/Junior Olympic level. Beth loves to learn about new advancements in swimming and share them with her swimmers while keeping swimming fun and exciting!
Beth works as a special education teacher assistant for middle school math students at Franklin Borough School. She also merges her interest in swimming and art and is currently working on goal boards for swimmers and abstract swim art. Future plans include writing a book about swimming stroke technique and starting a swim/art business.
She has two daughters, Kira and Dayna, who have already experienced the challenge and seen the benefits of swimming on the Sussex County Y team.
