I started as a parent at EAC in 1996 when my daughter joined the
team. I became an assistant coach the following year in 1997
as well as the EAC league rep. I have been the head coach at
EAC for approximately 10 years.
Favorite food: a good Italian beef sandwich
Favorite color: blue
The thing I like most about EAC: watching the swimmers
meet their goals and accomplishing techniques they were previously
unable to perform
The program continues to be made up of a good group familes
which helps make EAC a great program!
I've been coaching for 20 years starting at the Lebanon YMCA,
Robesonia, Conestoga Valley, Milton A Hershey, and EAC.
My favorite thing about coacking is pushing swimmers to be
better than they thought they could be.

A piece of advice i want the swimmers to have: If your
dreams don't scare you, they aren't big enough.
I started coaching a summer swim team at the age of 16 for four
years in MD. Then when I started teachng I coached a high
school team in MD for 2 years and then I also coached Etown High
School Swim Team for 7 years.
My favorite thing about coaching is when the swimmers improve
throughout the year. I also like giving back to the sport
that gave and added so my to my childhood.

Favorite Stroke ~ Breaststroke
Advice for swimmers: Set goals for yourself and remember that
finding success is not always a blue ribbon.
I have been coaching for 10+ years. I first coached swim
lessons for the Y, Willowood (summer), and helped with the LV
Otters (winter) during college. I then helped the AC Otters
immediately after college after moving back to Elizabethtown area
where I came back to EAC (with a break after the two little ones
came along). My favorite thing about coaching is being around
the excitement of the sport, swimmers who love working hard and
seeing them stick with it.

Piece of advice~ you will always swim your best when you're
having fun! Swimming can be a tough sport mentally, so always
talk with peer and coaches for advise. Swimming is a rare
sport in the health benefits and life skills you learn so be proud
of the sport!
