Meet The Instructors
I currently live in Temecula, California with my husband and three daughters. After high school I attended college at San Francisco State University. I majored in Political Science and Journalism. After years of working for BMW North America as an Accounting Assistant I was looking for a career that could help my community. The motivation for my work is making sure I can do my part in helping ensure no more children drown, especially in an area where pool access is so common. Helping educate families about water safety and teaching children how to master the Swim, Float, Swim method would be a life changing experience for many.
After having my first daughter 3 years ago I was introduced to Infant Swimming. Living in Southern California, swimming pools are prevalent in our backyards and after doing research into the frequency of child drownings I felt compelled to make sure my daughter had all the skills needed to survive and avoid a drowning incident. Since then my passion for the program and the survival skills it teaches young children has given me the opportunity to become an instructor with Infant Aquatics. I attended an intense 6 week instructor training certification program directed by Infant Aquatics founder Judy Heumann. So Cal Survival Swimming allows me to provide a valuable resource to my community and is part of my heartfelt mission to save lives. The amazing thing that sets Infant Aquatics apart from other programs is that it is conducive to the needs of every student and family. As an instructor I can work with each individual child in making sure they are provided with the ultimate tool for saving themselves in a time of need.
Choosing to become an Infant Aquatics instructor as my life long career was the best decision I ever made, it is the most challenging and rewarding thing I could have imagined.
I was born and raised in Monterey, CA and moved to So Cal in 2004 to attend San Diego State University. I received a swimming scholarship and was a member of the SDSU swimming and diving team where we competed in the Division 1 Mountain West Conference. In school, I discovered my passion for helping people and got my Bachelors of Science Degree in Nursing from SDSU. I currently work as a Registered Nurse at Temecula Valley Hospital and reside in Temecula with my husband and 2 young boys.
Swimming has always been a huge part of my life. At the age of 8 I joined a synchronized swimming team, then by age 11 I switched to my true passion of competitive swimming. I traveled the country on my club swim team and even picked up a couple records along the way. After college, I knew I wanted to keep swimming a part of my life, but it wasn’t until I met Jessica and was introduced to Swim, Float, Swim that I really realized my passion of seeing kids thrive and succeed (while being SAFE!) in the pool. Whether your little one just completed Swim, Float, Swim and is looking for the next step, or they have some basic stroke skills that need fine tuning, I can work with them to develop their skills. I work with each individual child’s unique needs and level of experience in the pool while mastering everything from flutter kicks to all 4 of the swimming strokes
(freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly).
WHAT IS THE SWIM ◦ FLOAT ◦ SWIM METHOD?
- SWIM•Float•SWIM!℠ is the safest, and most effective, way to learn to swim.
- I teach this method to all students to allow them to safely enjoy the water.
- Infants learn to roll over to a stable back float, which allows them to breathe until they can be rescued.
- Toddlers learn to propel through the water, roll over to float, relax and breathe on their backs, and flip onto their tummies and continue to swim again.
HOW ARE CLASSES CONDUCTED?
- Consistency in attendance is key.
- Toddlers and young children do best with short lessons multiple times per week, rather than one long lesson.
- Lessons are one-on-one, 4 days a week (M-Tu-W-Th), 10 minutes long for 6 consecutive weeks.
