I've been swimming for 16 years, from Summer Swim League and CYO to Grant high school and Grinnell College in Iowa. I've worked for Portland Parks and Recreation for 8 years as a lifeguard and swim instructor. I've also got my fair share of swim coaching thrown in over those years. It'd be easy to say the water is my second home. I enjoy sharing that aquatic passion with people, both experienced and new to the water!
During my time out of the water, I'm an English Major at PSU, reading too many books at once and writing stories on any available surface.
