Introduction: I specialize in infant aquatics and survival swimming. I can have a small child swimming the length of a pool within a few weeks, as opposed to year after year of swimming lessons. My job is to get your child safe around the water as quickly as possible, so that if he/she falls in this summer, they will have the ability to save themselves from a potential drowning situation. I am the only Instructor in the state of Connecticut, and have trained over 750 children. The families who have worked with me are thrilled with the speed and quality of their childrens' training and have written wonderful letters of recommendation, which can be seen on my website.
I love working with the children. There is nothing more fulfilling than taking a small child from a place of fear around the water, to literally diving into the pool and swimming face-down to my hands in a matter of a few days. These children are changed for the rest of their lives. They know that their fears can be conquered and that "I can't do it" is no longer in their vocabulary. The sense of pride I feel for them is immeasurable! Every time I see an infant roll over and float in order to save themselves, I know that I've made a difference in their lives. There is no greater gift than giving parents that kind of peace of mind.
