How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was blessed enough to group up with free swimming lessons and a free swim team. I remember learning how to swim and have enjoyed several jobs in the aquatic industry. I can not offer free lessons, but I want to give the best lessons possible so I can help one person love swimming, or keep one person from a swimming accident, I know I've made a positive influence. I do this for my kids.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look for small classes, mature instructors, and a passion for swimming. The Red Cross Learn to Swim program provides basic steps to learn how to swim. A great instructor will use these steps to ensure the best possible outcome.
