I have a passion to help people reach whatever goals they set for themselves, and I consider myself fortunate to teach others and learn from each person I coach. I was a scholarship swimmer for NC State University and an Olympic Trial participant. I have over 20 years' experience in assisting people with their swimming, and have coached hundreds of people from non-swimmers to triathletes. I am focused on teaching efficient technique, and tailor the instruction to meet individual needs. Being a Post Rehab Exercise Specialist allows me to adapt the stroke technique and training to reduce unnecessary joint stress and strengthen the affected area. My strength is connecting with each person where they are in relation to their current comfort in the water and moving them forward at the pace that is best for them.
