Audrey Lovett

Hi everyone! I have been with the Livorna Dolphins since the 2020 season, and I am so excited to be joining the team again during the 2022 season! Before coming to Livorna, I have been coaching for different clubs around the area and in Michigan. I have gained experience from coaching with the San Ramon Aquacats for 2 years, the Crow Canyon Sea Lions for 4 years, and the East Lansing Trojans during the school year. I have also recently received my bachelor's degree from Michigan State University in English Education. Because of this, I have many years of experience with kids of all ages that I have gained not only from coaching, but also from my teaching internships. I am thrilled to be a part of the Livorna Dolphins this season!

Will Kimber

Hi my name is Coach Will. I’ve been swimming for Livorna for 10 years. I’m just about to graduate from Monte Vista High School and my favorite stroke is butterfly. My absolute favorite Disney movie is Cars and my favorite color is purple. I’m looking forward to having fun at meets and helping swimmers improve their stroke technique. Go Livorna! 

Madison Siu

Hi, my name is Coach Madison. I’ve been swimming at Livorna since I was 7 and I’m currently at Monte Vista High School. My favorite stroke is breaststroke, my favorite color is red and my favorite Disney movie is Toy Story. This season I’m looking forward to getting to know all of the swimmers more and to help them improve their swimming! Go Dolphins!

Jason Veit

Hello, my name is Coach Jason. I am currently at Monte Vista High School and have been swimming for Livorna since I was 6 years old. My favorite stroke is freestyle, my favorite food is Lasagna, and my favorite Disney moves is The Incredibles. This season I'm looking forward to some super fun meets, watching everyone improve, and swimming my first race for Livorna in 3 years.

Sasha Gusev

Hi, I'm Coach Sasha. I swam for Livorna from ages 7-9, Round Hill Country Club from ages 10-11 (1 year under Coach Matt!), and Diablo Aquatics, a year-round team, from ages 11-18. I graduated from Monte Vista High School last year and I'm currently at Diablo Valley College studying Computer Science. I'll be transferring to one of the UCs this fall. I'm currently on my college's swim team and primarily compete in sprint freestyle and butterfly events. I'll be swimming at Livorna this summer for my last season ever (unless I decide to swim for the school I transfer to). I'm eager to use my swimming experience to help other swimmers achieve their goals. I'm excited to be coaching and competing for Livorna, the place where I began my swimming career!

Kalen Atkinson

Hi, my name is Coach Kalen. I’m 15 years old and I’ve been swimming with Livorna since I was 6 years old, which makes this year my 10th year with the team! My best strokes are freestyle and backstroke, although I have a lot of experience with swimming breaststroke as well. Outside of swimming I really enjoy going on bike rides, playing video games, and having fun with my friends. This is my first year coaching, so I’m looking forward to meeting all of the swimmers and helping them improve throughout the year. I hope we all have a great season! Go Dolphins!
