Coach Sarah joined the WFLA Coaching Staff in the summer of 2016 as a summer league coach. She began coaching summer league and club swimming (at CAT at the Long Center) while she was in high school, where an injury turned her focus from swimming to coaching swimming. As a swimmer, with the Clearwater Aquatic Team, Sarah was a junior national level butterflier. She always had a remarkable work ethic (Cashel was one of her coaches :)). Sarah has a bachelors degree in medical technology, and a Master's degree in psychology. She works in the laboratory at John Hopkins All Children's Hospital. Her passion for the sport of swimming has brought her back to the pool deck, where WFLA is fortunate to have her working with our Bronze, Silver, and Gold swimmers. Sarah is an animal lover, whose fur kids consist of two french bulldogs and two cats.
Anna joined the coaching team at WFLA in the fall of 2013. She grew up swimming on summer leagues and swam for her high school swim team in New Mexico. She currently trains with the WLFA masters group and participates in distance open water swim events, including the annual Tampa Bay Frogman 5K Swim. Outside of the pool, Anna is a full time speech therapist who loves cycling, coffee, the beach and boating!
