Brandon, Lifeguard and Private Swim Instructor

Houston

My swim instructing background goes back to my swimming days, where I trained for 10 years perfecting my strokes and technique. I taught swim lessons for a spring in High school, and thoroughly enjoyed it. My specialties include freestyle and backstroke technique, as well as basic techniques for young children. Fun fact about me: I’ve swam with sea turtles in Hawaii!

I have been lifeguarding for about a year now. My intention for guarding is to help create an environment that is the most fun, and safe, it can possibly be. My favorite part of lifeguarding would have to be seeing how much fun everyone is having in the pool on a hot summer day! Fun fact about myself: I swam for 10 years of my life, and hold a record in the 200 freestyle relay at my high school!

I serve the Houston communities of Sugar Land, Katy/Cinco Ranch, Pearland, and Bellaire, among others

Harry Sale, Private Swim Instructor

Houston

I learned to swim when I was three years old, and joined competitive swimming when I was five. Fifteen years later, I am now a member of the Florida Institute of Technology University Swim Team going into my junior year. I’ve been teaching swim lessons for three years and absolutely love it. There’s no greater feeling than exposing a new swimmer to the joys of the sport and ability I’ve loved my entire life, and helping someone progress towards water safety and proficiency. I can teach basic water safety all the way up to advanced skills and fine tuning, and just love watching swimmers progress in the activity!

Meg Stolt, Swim Instructor, Lifeguard, LGI

Houston

30+ years of swim lesson teaching experience and lifeguard experience. 10 years of Lifeguard Instructing.

Serving the communities of the Greater Houston Area.

Swim Instructor role:I have been teaching and coaching swimming for over 30 years to children of all ages, in a variety of settings and environments. I also currently work with triathletes in improving swim technique for open water. I thoroughly enjoy the excitement a child (regardless of the age), when a goal is achieved. I can share many stories about swimming and teaching, but nothing is more satisfying when a child has a big smile and is thrilled to see you because they enjoy the swim time. When teaching swim lessons, I am thrilled to see the self-confidence of each child building as they progress.

Event Lifeguard role: I am now entering my 35th season as a LG. Each year brings many rewards. It is joy to see kids having fun at their parties and playing in the pool. I am present to keep everyone safe. 

Additional certifications in: Lifeguard Open Water Certified — lake/ocean, WaterPark Certified, O2 Certified,

Red Cross Lifeguard Instructor (LGI) and CPR Instructor roles: My goal in training lifeguards is to instill the understanding that we are there to protect and serve. It is our job to prevent injuries before they occur and respond rapidly when an incident does happen. I teach the skills and practice the skills, so the participant can successfully meet the requirements to become a lifeguard. I train both pool and waterfront guards.

I have been teaching CPR for over 20 years. It is interesting to see how the various certifying agencies have become more stream-lined in their presentation of this lifesaving skill, creating an environment of being able to work together. It is rewarding when a participant reaches out to share how they were able to help someone because of the class.

Regional Swim Instructor Manager Bettina Perkins

Based in Austin, TX

I’m your Region’s Manager of Swim Instructors. Contact me through the website contact form, for anything swim instructor related once swim lessons have begun with your instructor.

A little more about me… I’ve been actively teaching swim lessons for six years and enjoy this more than any other profession I’ve ever been involved in. There is nothing better than doing what you love for a living and being able to teach and share it with others. I get to teach a child; learn life long skills that last a life time, as well as safety and the joy of the water. I’m always amazed at how students learn so much in a short period of time. It is also fun to watch them “Strut Their Stuff” when they become confident at what they have learned. I started swimming at age 3 and have never enjoyed anything more than the water. I have been a competitive swimmer, PADI diver and Coast Guard Auxiliary member for many years. Welcome to Happy Swimmers! I am happy to help.
