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:
Swim Lesson Coordinator
How long have you been with the Y?
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.
