Having been around competitive swimming my entire life, I truly
believe that swimming provides much needed structure in the lives
of today’s youth. I believe our roles as coaches is teaching
our athletes how to set goals, how to monitor success/failures, how
to overcome adversity and nurturing their desire to focus on the
small seemingly insignificant details that we know make a world of
difference in a race. Giving the athletes ownership of their sport
allows them to take responsibility for any breakdowns that arise
and most importantly allows them to take responsibility for any
successes they have. My job is teach them all of the necessary
skills that are required to succeed, instill confidence in them
that they are capable of achieving anything and then training them
so their bodies and minds have a symbiotic relationship.

I began competitive swimming at the age of 7, and have been in love of the sport ever since. I continued through high school and am currently swimming for the Santa Rosa Junior College. I started coaching Pre-team at the age of 15, and fell in love with the job. I continued coaching for 5 years, working with age group swimmers of all skill levels. I believe that swimming is so much more than just a sport, and working with the kids has been such an amazing experience. My goal is to help swimmers achieve their own personal goals, both inside and outside of the pool, and most importantly, have fun while doing so. Being a swimmer is such an amazing and fulfilling experience and I hope to share that with all of my athletes.
