From the core of my body to the beat of my heart, I live, breath, and eat swimming.  From a young age, I have lived in the water. It is my passion, it's my home, it's where I love to be.  I joined the swim team in my freshman year and swam varsity all four years. Being a versatile swimmer, I learned to love all strokes and events, but by far, the 50 butterfly was the best.  It pushed me to my edge and forced my to excell. I knew I had to pass on my love of water.  I have learned everything from not only accomplished swimmers and coaches, but owners as well, who have opened my mind to the swimming world.  For the last 8 years, I have taugh all ages of swimmers from novice to advanced, even had the pleasure of working with children with special needs. My efforts to enter the swimming world have payed off with the privilege of writing a swim program for a bay area swim school. I have been the head coach of the JFK TITANS for three years.  And now I'm here, ready to teach, train and pass on my love of swimming to this team.
