I am super excited to be back and involved with the Virginia Run Riptide!

I swam with the Virginia Run Riptide from ages six to eighteen years old. I swam all four years of high school on the varsity swim team at Wakefield School, where I was  team captain and 3 time team MVP. I also received the Wakefield School Athletic Director’s Award for Excellence and Honor for my swimming performance.

Throughout my college years I was a 4 year member and team captain of the Roanoke College Mens Swim Team.  I have been named 1st Team All Conference and team MVP as well as ODAC conference champion in the 50 freestyle and multiple relays. At Roanoke, I am a senior, preparing for graduation, majoring in Health and Exercise Science.

I have very high hopes for the summer swim season. Lets Go Riptide!

I have always had a love for swimming both competitively and as a form of leisure and exercise. This is why I am looking forward to joining the VA Run Riptide as an assistant coach.

I am 22 years old and originally from Marion, in Southwest Virginia. I graduated from Roanoke College with a degree in public health studies.

I swam for my varsity high school team for four years and also with my club team, LASO, for three years concurrently. After that, I swam for the Roanoke College men’s varsity team for two years. My primary strokes were freestyle and butterfly while my primary event was the 200 free. I have never been on a team that was not supportive and filled with wonderful teammates.

I have 5 years experience lifeguarding both pools and waterfronts. My previous employment was with Aquatic Adventures Swim School instructing kids ages 5-12 on both survival swimming and competitive swimming. I am extremely excited to be part of this team and I am looking forward to helping improve swimmers and have fun with them as well!
