I was born and raised in Macungie, PA which is on the eastern side of Pennsylvania. I grew up on a summer swim team, and then started swimming year round when I was in middle school. I swam for my high school, and continued on in college at the Division 3 level. Swimming has always been a love of mine, and I grew that love through coaching my summer swim team from home! I learned so much, and used that knowledge to help me through learning to become an elementary school teacher. I currently teach 3rd grade at Belle View Elementary School! 

 

My favorite part about coaching is seeing kids swim in events they never thought they could do, and be successful! The smiles at the end of a race are the best part!
