Get to know us a little better!

Published 06.11.18
 
To help you get to know us a little better, we have decided to start an employee spotlight for both our Midtown YMCA and Express Y branches! This month, learn more about Y staff members below:
 

Kate Norwood

Branch

YMCA Pool

Job Title
Swim Lesson Coordinator 
How long have you been with the Y?  
9 Years
 
What's your favorite thing about working for the Y?
I love meeting new people. One thing I like most about my job is helping to educate parents and kids about water safety. I like all of the community outreach we do at the Y, especially our Swim for Life program
 
What's your Y story?
I came to work at the Y after being out of college for a year. I had worked in the aquatics field most of my life and loved it. After being at the Y for a year the Aquatics Director, at the time, needed more help with the swim lesson program and I have enjoyed being more involved to make our program better.
 
What would you like Y members to know about you?
  • I have been teaching swim lessons since I was 14 years old.
  • I have been married almost 8 years. I met my husband while we were at UNCW. We were both in the Phi Sigma Pi Honor fraternity.
  • I have 16 month old twins (1 girl & 1 boy) and they are my life!
  • I studied Athletic Training and psychology in school.
 
How do you like to spend your spare time? 
Any spare time I have is spent with my growing family. We love going to beach, park and visit family.
