As a formal wrestler, I discovered my love for team sports in high school. Receiving a job offer for lifeguarding, I started working in the aquatics field at the age of seventeen with no formal swim training. Falling in love with the sport of swimming I went on to receive my WSI and USA swimming certifications.

After teaching lessons and running intramural swim teams, I was offered a coaching position at the Severna Park Racquetball and Fitness Club as an Assistant Age Group Swim Coach with the Stingrays.

Over the last two years, I have also had the privilege of Running Severn River Swim Club’s community summer team. Coaching professionally along with running an aquatics facility for three years has cultivated a deep passion and appreciation for all things swimming.
