When Heather decided to swim at Wheaton College (IL) she thought she would continue to swim the 100 back. Upon meeting her coach for the first time, he asked if she had ever swam the mile. After answering truthfully, it was decided that she would be a distance swimmer for Wheaton and that was it. She was a 4 year letter winner, making the Division III National B-cut in the 1,650 every year and being selected to swim at the Division III Nationals meet her junior year. Heather graduated from Wheaton in 1998 with a BA in Literature.

What hasn’t changed over the years is that it is important for swimmers to have fun and learn new skills simultaneously. It’s rewarding to teach kids about teamwork and respect at such a young age and watch the swimmers flourish in and out of the pool.
