Leena swam the past two summers with Trails and wishes she had known about it earlier, because the second she joined it felt like she had been missing out on having a second family!

Leena also has been a lifeguard at LifeTime since she was 16 as well as a swim instructor there, teaching kids from age 2-12 years how to swim. She has enjoyed every second of it! Leena is super excited to be coaching the 8 and unders this season.
