I have been a swimmer and around swimming my whole life. Swimming runs in my family; my mom, aunt, and uncle were all swimmers and now all of my cousins and I also swim. I have been swimming competitively since I was 5 years old. I am from Bend, Oregon and swam for Bend Swim Club as well as Mountain View High School. Currently I am on the varsity swim team at CMU. My favorite stroke is breaststroke and I also like swimming IM. I am a junior this year at CMU and am majoring in elementary education with an emphasis in math. I have had previous experience being around kids and swimming while teaching swim lessons and lifeguarding. I am excited that I get to work with kids every day and coach them using my passion and love for both swimming and kids.

I have been competing since I was 7 years old in Thornton, CO. I am currently a varsity captain studying marketing and psychology at Colorado Mesa University. 
I have coached and taught lessons in the past and have a passion for this fine water sport rooted in years of competitive swimming and growth. 
Swimming can be a lifelong sport as coach Ed has proved, and it is an excellent learning tool for young minds. I aim to inspire positivity and develop technique in the water.

I have been a competitive swimmer for 17 years starting at the age of 5 and have loved the water my whole life. I am from Chippewa Falls, WI and grew up swimming for the YMCA in my hometown. I am currently a co-captain on the CMU Swim and Dive team and a supervisor for the Maverick Aquatic Swim Lessons. One of my greatest accomplishments is competing in the 2021 Swimming Olympic Trials. 
 
I have been a swim coach for 5 years and it is one of the most rewarding experiences. My coaching techniques revolve around body awareness, activating our muscles, and minds while staying motivated and driven during practices. I specialize in Breastroke and am passionate about teaching swimmers techniques first. I love to get in the water with the swimmers and help them to achieve all of their goals and dreams.
