I have been enjoying the water and swimming since I was about four years old. Shortly after starting primary school, I enrolled as a Swalings pupil and continued to progress under the watchful eye of the Swalings team. At the age of eleven I achieved my 3000 metre badge… I was really very proud!
My love of the water has taken me on to experience snorkelling and diving in both the Caribbean and in Australia. As well as travelling in my spare time, I also love spending time by the beach locally, cooking and entertaining for family and friends.
I began teaching for Swalings in 2003 and continued to do so for the next four years alongside studying. I then spent a few years in a local hotel as their manager.
Recently I returned to the world of swimming and, more specifically, Swalings. Having been a Swalings pupil as a child, then completing my teaching qualifications before continuing to teach with the team, I share the Swalings passion for teaching people to swim and stay safe in the water whilst having fun.
