I am so excited to be back to another season coaching the Dolphins Swim Club. I started swimming as a little Dolphin when I was 8 years old. I swam for Dolphins and BBCHS until I graduated at 18. I also coached Dolphins for a few years in high school. I then continued my swimming career swimming Division I at Bradley University in Peoria. While I was in Peoria, I coached the River City Swim Club, lifeguarded, managed the outdoor pool, and taught swim lessons. When I graduated, I returned to the area as a teacher for Manteno High School and coached Dolphins again for a few years until I had my daughter. I took quite a few years off from coaching, but taught both of my kiddos to swim. When Hailey decided to join the team, I tried to sit on sidelines and support her as a parent. However, the love of coaching this sport brought me back to it. Now, with both of my children swimming and my husband coaching as well, we are back to being ‘Dolphins’ and couldn't be happier!
