Introduction: I grew up swimming as a child and being around water has always been a huge part of my life. As a teen, I was a lifeguard and captain of the swim team. In college (1998), I became a WSI certified instructor. I taught lessons in the various places that I have lived in Loganville, Snellville, Athens and Flowery Branch, Georgia. Teaching children to swim is what inspired me years ago to become a full time educator. I received my doctorate from Liberty University in Education. As time has passed, one thing has remained consistent- my passion for water instruction. I have continued to teach children and adults to swim after school and during the summers. My goal is for swimmers to have a positive experience in the water and show them the keys we all naturally have for buoyancy. We can easily float and swim with a gentle touch of tailored instruction and muscle memory. It is my pleasure to use each swimmer’s personal strengths to create an individualized lesson. By understanding the fundamentals of the water, swimmers create a mindset that will let them swim independently. Watching someone go from uncertainty in the water to greatness inspires me to keep instructing. It is still as rewarding today as it was 20 years ago. To a new swimmer, lessons mean more than swimming. They mean everything! I love to watch students of all ages have their breakthrough moment again and again and again. They mean the world for confidence, and even more importantly, for safety. If you or your children are not certain you can swim without dependence, I am here to help you meet your goals.

Eva was super great with my grandson, she made him feel comfortable, and her energy was nice in getting him to move. Great experience at our neighborhood pool, would love to do more lessons this summer for Elis baby brother this summer.

Ms. Patrice was awesome! She made my 3 year old comfortable and confident by the last session. My daughter asked me if she could do lessons with her again this year

My 9-year-old son loved working with Patrice. She taught him important swim skills while also having fun with him. He always looked forward to swim-lesson days! Patrice is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and caring. He’s learned all the skills he needs to join a swim team now, including a love for the sport itself. Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor!
