Coach Kelsey has been swimming and coaching for 9 years. She first discovered her love of the sport with none other than Desert Foothills Swim Team as a 13 year old. She began her coaching career as a peer-mentor, working with younger swimmers on DFST and teaching lessons at Kim Courtney’s Swim School. Eventually, she became a head coach alongside Trevor Moore. Even while studying secondary education in Flagstaff, Kelsey could not resist the call of coaching with Desert Foothills during the summertime. Currently, she serves her beloved hometown by working full time as an English Teacher at Cactus Shadows High School in the Cave Creek Unified School District and coaching with her own team- Desert Foothills.
