Assistant Head Coach
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
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!
