I am really looking forward to coaching with the Stingrays in the summer of 2017.
I have been active in swimming for a great many years. I swam competitively throughout my childhood and had the opportunity to represent Canada at the Pan American and Commonwealth Games before receiving a swimming scholarship to Simon Frasier University. While completing my teaching practicum I was asked by my hometown Swimclub if I would coach, I mentored under Ron Gilchrist with the Prince Rupert Swimclub. There I developed a love of working with swimmers to develop their skills, self-confidence and self-worth.
I created the Cranbrook Tritons, Terrace Bluebacks and when I moved to Calgary in 1988 started coaching the Glenmore Seals Recreational Swim Club. I began coaching summer club in 2000 with the Calgary Tritons and am excited to start this new chapter with the Stingrays.
