I have 20+ years of coaching and competing experience and have worked as a full-time coach for the past 7 years. I am passionate about developing efficient movement in the water and growing strong and smart swimmers of all ages!

I hold coaching certifications in the following: Total Immersion, United States Masters Swimming (USMS), American Swim Coaches Association (ASCA), & Red Cross WSI (Water Safety Instruction).  I am a Licensed Training Partner with the American Red Cross and active with WOWSA (World Open Water Swimming Association).

I swam across the English Channel before swimming at American University in Washington, DC. I live in Riva, Maryland with my two children and kitty, Elli. I love open water swimming for competition and adventure!  And, I most recently made the National USMS Top 10 List in (3) individual swim events in 2018.
