I have always had a love of the water and swimming. I am proud and excited to bring my knowledge and passion for  learning to the Lake Cumberland Swim Team. 

I moved to Kentucky from Hammond, Indiana, in April 2011, to marry my husband Tom Davis. I was the Aquatic Director, in Indiana, at the Hammond Branch YMCA, for 11 years. I worked with students of all ages from infant  to adult, teaching them the skills of swimming and water safety. 

I have 2 children and an extended family that includes 2 more children. 

I am a proud Grandma of 11 grandchildren. We attend Liberty Baptist Church and I am blessed to have the   opportunity to continue sharing  my passion with this team.  

I can be contacted at 606‐425‐6063 or [email protected]
