Swim Confidently. Swim Joyfully.

"As a swim coach, it's my passion to impart confidence and a love of swimming to those whom I teach in the pool or open water."


One of my first memories of swimming was being driven to the YMCA in Kansas City for lessons. I remember the tile was blue, the water was cold, and that I cried all the way to the pool. I went to a small high school that never won a swim meet in my entire four years on the team. My college was also relatively small, and I think we won one meet. And yet, 35 years later, I am still swimming and I still love it. 


Swimming for me is about relaxation, fitness, friends, 
traveling and adventure. It's not about winning.
