Vicki Beard has been an age group coach with Piranha Swimming since 2005. Her involvement with the Piranhas began in 1998 when her children were swimmers. She became active as a Pacific Swimming official and was a nationally rated USA Swimming official until 2008. She served as the Zone 3 Officials Chair from 2006 to 2008. Vicki's philosophy of sports is that everyone should have the opportunity to participate and excel, and she believes that swimming provides opportunities for growth and development beyond the purely physical. Though never a competitive swimmer, sports have been a big part of her life since she was a child. She was a member of collegiate golf, volleyball, and softball teams at Miami-Dade Junior College and Santa Rosa Junior College, and more recently has been involved in running and triathlons. When not coaching, Vicki is a professional archaeologist and architectural historian working for the consulting firm of Tom Origer & Associates.
Jeffrey began swimming competitively in 2008 in Alaska where he swam for the Kodiak Kingfishers and the Ketchikan Killer Whales. He fell in love with the sport instantly; something about the water called to him as no other sport had before. Jeffrey joined Piranha Swimming as a swimmer in 2012 when his family returned to the “Lower 48”. He has been very active in our pre-team and stoke school programs, where he was one of the team’s first instructors. Jeffrey has a passion for teaching and enjoys seeing his swimmers have fun while developing their skills. He hopes to instill in them the same love he has for the sport.

Melissa will be coaching Group 1, our 10 & Under Prep group.
