My swimming career started when I was four years old, I grew up swimming for the Arden Manor Piranhas. I also started swimming year round when I was nine for Ranch Arroyo Swim Club. I attended El Camino High school where I swam for their swim team. I began coaching in 2000 for the Piranhas and absolutely loved it! I coached from 2000-2005 and then moved away to attend college. I was not able to coach due to my work schedule and now that I am back it feels amazing. I have always loved being in the pool and cannot wait to get the season started. I enjoy teaching children the fundamentals of swimming, and as a coach I have learned that motivation is the key to a successful swimming career. I am excited to see the great potential this team has and am looking forward of being a part of it. I love to see the passion that the children share for this sport.
