I began swimming when I was 13 years old with a summer club team. After falling in love with the sport, I went to Regis Jesuit High School and swam varsity all four years. In high school, I started coaching for the Heather Ridge Country Club summer club swim team in Denver.
I attended Bowling Green State University and swam during my freshman year. I had the opportunity to join my family for a year in Malta and work as an assistant coach for the National team. Upon my return to Western State College, I coached the summer club and started both the boy’s and girl’s high schools swim teams. I am currently the Aquatics Manager at Raintree Athletic Club. I coach both the Masters and Youth swim teams and teach swim lessons to children and adults. I enjoy teaching technique and helping swimmers improve their strokes. I like to push swimmers to achieve better times and help them realize how much they can accomplish.
In addition to swimming, my other passion is photography. I look forward to working with all the swimmers at Village Green swim team.
