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 have always loved swimming! I have been a lifeguard/swim instructor for 3+ years now, teaching all ages. I grew up swimming with my family often and participating in swimming lessons from a young age. I am from Regina, SK, and have moved to Saskatoon to attend the University of Saskatchewan and work towards a degree in health/nutrition. Just as I love to be in the water, I also love seeing and helping kids work on their own skills in the pool. Teaching kids and watching them grow to become awesome swimmers is always so exciting and I am eager to continue with the Lifestyle Swim team!

I grew up in a small town outside of Lloydminster Alberta. I have been swimming for as long as I can remember! I started with swimming lessons and then I fell in love with Synchronized Swimming at the age of 6. I went on to be a member of the Synchro club for 14 years, and when of age I became a Lifeguard/Instructor with the City of Lloydminster. After High School I moved to Edmonton to pursue Paralegal Studies at Grant MacEwan University, while still obtaining a job in an aquatic environment part time. Now having moved to Saskatoon I am so grateful I have the opportunity to continue my passion working with new swimmers and teaching lessons.

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.

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!

I grew up in Lloydminster Alberta, spending most of my time in and around the pool. My passion for swimming started when I enrolled in Synchronized swimming at the age of 6. I have 5 years of Instructor and lifeguard experience from the pools in Lloydminster. I moved to Saskatoon to attend Edwards School of Business to gain my Bachelor of Commerce.  I am glad to have the opportunity to help people find comfortability and a love for the water. My main goal during any lesson is to work at the child’s pace and make sure they are getting the most out of the time we share.  Through skill-building, I encourage people to have trust in themselves during their swimming experience as they improve and grow.
