Certified Infant Aquatics Instructor

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.



"Jessica has been patient and loving towards our son as she has been teaching him. She is well trained in the Swim float Swim. We are blessed to have her as an instructor and would highly recommend her services."


"Jessica and this program have been a blessing to our family--not only did she make it possible for us to enroll our 17mo son in the Infant Rescue Swim program but she has also been so very patient with him and encouraging to me as a parent! We appreciate her knowledge and confidence in both Nathan and myself as his instructor when she isn't around. Nathan passed in the recommended time frame and we continue to take classes to improve his skills! Very highly recommended as a first step toward lifelong water safety and confidence."


"Jessica is awesome! At the begging of our 6 weeks journey, he did not believe that my 16 month old twins will be able to swim and float...not only are they swimming and floating, they are now enjoying being in the pool. Jessica is very patient and kind. Couldn't have been a better instructor for my twinkies!"
