Swim Lessons  Private, Semi-private and group lessons.  As a life-guard since the age of 16 and growing up on an island being able to have confidence in one owns swimming is a survival skill.  I was former Aquatics Director and Swim Lesson Manager and take pride in using a no float technique to teach swimmers to use their own buoyancy in the water.  I love using traditional and creative teaching aids such as kick boards, pool noodles, pumpkins, and songs to help novice swimmers master skills and intermediate swimmers gain endurance and stamina.

Team Building & Staff Development  Looking to build comrade amongst your team?  I love to facilitate group and cooperate outings.  My extensive background with Challenge Courses and Adventure programs has lead to my love of laying the strong foundation to set teams and groups up for success.


Youth programs began as my initial focus. Teaching a variety of after school and summer camps from the young scientist to the full theater and dance productions. Preparing the next generation of American Red Cross Babysitters and enjoying the outdoors teaching Archery & Challenge Courses.

My background in youth development drives my passion of working with children. I’ve spent my professional career focused on giving our youth skills that will keep them engaged and supported while they navigate their childhood.
