I feel in love with swimming as an infant and have never looked back.

This ignited a terrific journey of learning and a role which brings me immense pride and joy.

I am deeply passionate about water safety and water activities and particularly drawn to teach and assist anyone unable to participate in mainstream classes.

I frame my lessons with warmth, patience, generosity, encouragement, support and celebration.

There is nothing else I would rather be doing.
