My Coaching Philosophy:

When it comes to swimming, I believe that it is very important for the swimmers to have fun being on a swim team while learning how to correctly swim at a competitive level.  It is important for a person to enjoy swimming.  Participating in a sport involves an equal balance of fun and learning.  As a coach I love seeing the progress being made in each swimmer’s skill level.  I enjoy learning just as much from the swimmers as they do from me, if not more.  As a coach, I feel that it is my job for the athletes to achieve the goals each swimmer sets for their season.  If a swimmer wants to work out, get in shape, and learn how to properly swim than that is what I’m going to focus on with that particular swimmer.  If there is a swimmer who wants to swim in every meet, set goals for becoming faster and making state, that is what we are going to focus on. 

College: I graduated from UW Oshkosh with a Bachelors of Social Work in 2011.  Currently I work with Lutheran Social Services at a day center for adults with mental illness. 

My Background with Swimming: This is my fourth season coaching for STAR.  Although I have only been coaching for a short time, I have been swimming my entire life.  This includes lifeguarding since I was sixteen, and teaching swim lessons since I was nineteen.  When I was in fourth grade I started competitively swimming with STAR.  I swam for all four years of high school, and went on to swim a short time in college.  This is where I found that my passion for the sport was no longer swimming, but it was giving back by coaching. 

I would like to take a quick minute to thank all the parents of the swimmers I have had the privilege of coaching.  Typically you will find me coaching the younger swimmers.  This is a very exciting time for me, as I am able to educate swimmers on the ability to have fun while working hard on a team.  There has always been an desire to learn with all the athletes I have coached.  Thank you for letting me be a part of this team, and I look forward to being able to coach your swimmer in the future!
