Sailfish Lessons


Loading Classes

I?m currently a junior at the University of Texas majoring in Chemistry and simultaneously pursuing teaching certification for composite sciences at the primary and secondary levels. I?m a USA swimming certified coach, and I?ve worked with Coach Chris and the Sailfish for three years; with the St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School team for two years. I hold lifeguard certification through both the American Red Cross as well as the YMCA. This year marks my fourth year as a coach for the Marlins and I couldn?t be more excited to return. I began swimming with the Marlins 5 years prior to coaching and every year has been both fun and rewarding. As a swimmer for the Marlins, I was able to find my love for the sport. As a coach I hope to instill that same love in each and every swimmer that passes through, whether they stay for a year or a decade.
