My speed swimming background is what propelled me into the passion for instructing. Coaching speed swimming lead to lifeguarding, which I pursued while coaching for many years. I have been lifeguarding and instructing swimming lessons for over 10 years. My love for the water and respect for the sport has lead me to where I am today! With my years of experience influenced by different programs, I’ve developed a progression for all swimmers, that gets results in the most efficient way possible. I have discovered that the best way to get quick and lasting results in swimming is through private lessons, where the focus is 100% on the child and their specific needs. That is why I created Lifestyle Swim Lessons.
I have a long history of swimming, beginning with summer lessons and moving to joining the Regina Optimistic Dolphins team where I competed for 3 years. I joined the Dolphins later than most, so I was slightly behind in skill level compared my teammates. My coaches cared about my success and encouraged me everyday to reach my goals. It was during that time I realized I wanted to be able to teach others to swim and succeed like my coaches had done for me. I have worked in my hometown pool in Cupar SK, teaching swimming lessons for the past two summers. I have taught a variety of ages and skill levels, including adult water aerobics. I moved to Saskatoon this fall to attend the University of Saskatchewan where I am enrolled in Pre-Pharmacy. I’m so happy I have been given the opportunity to continue my role as a swimming instructor and look forward to helping more kids.
I grew up in Lloydminster Alberta, spending much of my childhood in swimming lessons or at our local pool leisurely swimming. I have 5 years of instructing and lifeguarding experience and am passionate about seeing children fulfil their potential. I moved to Saskatoon to attend school to gain my degree in Early Childhood Education. I am eager to resume instructing, as I love what I do. My favourite part of the job is watching the children gain experience and become more comfortable with their bodies in the water. Watching a child achieve a skill and be so excited about it is such a rewarding experience!
I started instructing, following in my mom’s footsteps, at our hometown pool in Nipawin, Sk. I worked there for many summers before moving to Saskatoon for university, at which time I began teaching with K&K Swim School. Unfortunately, Covid-19 put a halt to my teaching career for a year, but I am so happy to be back in the water with my new swimming family at Lifestyle Swim Lessons. After 7 years of combined experience, my favorite aspect of teaching is seeing my students' confidence and perseverance as they work to conquer their fears in the water. Swimming is a life skill that everyone should learn and be welcome to explore at their own pace, to create long-term success in the water.
I was born and raised in Saskatoon, but love small town life and getting out in the community. I am currently in my final year of achieving my education degree from the University of Saskatchewan. My passion for swimming comes from many years of taking lessons and being on speed swimming teams. I was a speed swimming coach in Saskatoon for ten years and am very grateful for my experiences there. I love working with kids of all ages and abilities. I am very passionate about assisting all swimmers hit their goals and love to see them make new strides in whatever they are working towards!
My hometown is Lloydminster, and I've recently moved to Saskatoon for new opportunities. My mom enrolled my in synchronized swimming at just five years old. Throughout my childhood, winters were spend competing with the Border City Stingrays synchro team, and summers were spent at the lake doing swimming lessons. I have been lifeguarding and instructing at the pools in Lloydminster for about 5 years and I’m exited to start teaching again in Saskatoon. I love being actively engaged and having fun with my swimmers. My philosophy is the more fun my swimmers are having, the more they enjoy their lessons, which yields better results.
