Welcome Lily Donohue to PAC

Swimmers and Parents,

Please welcome Lily Donohue to PAC's coaching staff as Jody's assistant coach at Dishman Pool!  Lily has a long well accomplished history of swimming in Oregon for herself and her family as both her sister and brother swam for PAC at one time (her sister Ida still holds a few records). 

She has a passion for the sport and will bring a fresh set of eyes, perspective and knowledge to PAC.

Here is more on Lily!  She will join Jody at Dishman tonght. 

I began my long swimming career on a Portland Parks and Rec’ summer league swim team and shortly after joined David Douglas Swim Club. I also competed for Cleveland high school for three years. I attended Boise State where we won the Western Athletic Conference my freshman and sophomore year. I then transferred to California State University Bakersfield on a full ride swimming scholarship where I was captain my senior year. After graduating I moved to New Zealand for a year where I was fortunate enough to coach a small swim team on a little island outside of Auckland. It was there that I fell in love with swimming all over again! After returning home, I began working as a realtor and continued to pursue swimming as a way to support my work life balance. I am so excited to join PAC as a coach and I truly look forward to being around the sport on a consistent basis!
When I am not coaching or selling houses, you can find me at my favorite local yoga studio, cooking up something vegetarian, or exploring the Columbia Gorge with friends!
