From my love of the water sprang a lifeguarding job when I was sixteen years old. I started working at Golfland Sunsplash and loved every minute of it. I enjoyed watching the water, ensuring people were following the rules and being safe, and stepping in when emergencies did arise. Over the years at Golfland Sunsplash, I saved a number of people and always felt grateful to have a job being around a place that I loved so much. My love for water shows in the way that I interact with guests because I want them to have as enjoyable of an experience as I do being around it and in it when I’m scuba diving. I hope to work your event because I believe in not only keeping you and your guests safe but also being upbeat while doing so. To leave off, a fun fact about me is that I have scuba dived in Okinawa, Japan and also Monterey Bay. I hope to someday scuba dive in Antarctica.

Happy Swimmers is a great company to work for, especially when it attracts such great families who are always so friendly and inviting.
