Bonita Springs Head Site Coach
originally from Philadelphia, Pa and I moved to Bonita Springs in
April of 2017. I’ve been passionately coaching the sport of
swimming for the last 8 years. My coaching experience first began
at Sunny Willow Swim Club (Willow Grove, Pa) where I served as the
Head Coach from 2011-2014. The team consisted of 125 athletes with
ages ranging from 4-18 years old. I also volunteered as the
assistant coach for my alma mater, Bloomsburg University
(Bloomsburg, Pa), for the 2013-2014 season. After graduating from
BU in 2014 with a B.S. in communications, I went on to attend
graduate school at Nova Southeastern University (Fort Lauderdale).
While at NSU, I served as the graduate assistant coach for both
them men’s and women’s swim programs from 2014-2016.
During my time at NSU I helped coach 4 individual Division II
National Champions, including GCST alum Courtney Deveny in the 400
IM. Additionally, I was the assistant coach and recruiting
coordinator at Miami University (Oxford, Oh) for the 2016-2017
campaign. After one year in Ohio, I chose to move back to the
Sunshine State to volunteer with the women’s swim team at
Florida Gulf Coast University (Fort Myers) while I complete my
masters’ degree in college student administration. In

Bonita Springs Assistant Coach
I was raised in West Lafayette, Indiana. At the age of 6 years old, I began swimming on the Lafayette Country Club team and continued throughout my high school years. After graduating, I spent many summers working on Mackinac Island, Michigan. It was there, where I started a swim program with over 40 Islanders, ages 3-15 years. In 1982, I moved to Bonita Springs. Years later, I was an Assistant Coach in Bonita for Swim Florida, in 1998. Now, once again I am excited to get back into teaching and coaching kids in a sport that I love! I’m happy to join the GCST, as a Novice Coach at the Bonita Springs pool.
I reside in Bonita, with my husband Doug and daughter Ashley.
