I starting coaching when I was 18 at the Carlisle Swim Club. I attended Western Maryland College (now McDaniel College) where I swam and earned my degree in Exercise Science and Physical Education. After having four children close together we moved to the Carlisle area in 2001. I started coaching at the Carlisle Family YMCA in 2002 and have been here ever since. Along with coaching at the Y, I am the head coach at the Carlisle Swim Club and for the Carlisle High School Swimming and Diving Team. I have my USA swimming certification as well as American Swim Coaches Association level 1-4 coaching certification. My favorite part of coaching is watching the swimmers progress through the years from a beginner all the way to national level swimmers. My goal is to have the swimmers become competitive, but also develop a life long love of the sport.
