I am originally from Rockville, MD, where I grew up swimming competitively for a USS team, RMSC, and swam for and coached my community swim team, Manor Woods. In addition to coaching, I also managed pools during my college summers. I began swimming with a Masters program in college at the University of Pennsylvania, followed by Princeton Masters, and then at UCLA when I came out west to get my MBA. Up until a couple of years ago, I swam with and helped coach the El Segundo Masters team.
Our family lives in Redondo Beach. I have 1 child on the team who is a "B." She has been swimming since the age of 4 and on Surfside for the past 4 years. I have become more deeply involved with Surfside because I really appreciate the team's relaxed culture and goal of making swimming a lifetime sport for our children.
