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!

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. 8 years of Lifeguard Instructing.

Serving the communities of the Greater Houston Area.

Swim Instructor role:I have been teaching and coaching swimming for over 30years 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.

Event Lifeguard role:I began lifeguarding at 16 and found a passion in water safety. This began an incredible journey and lifeguarding on some of the wildest waters in the world. Currently, I guard at several local pools and private parties, as well as open water swim events. As I guard, I not only watch the water, but empower my patrons to make responsible choices and learn about water safety. The NO, has a reason. I want your experience to be fun, as long as it is safe.

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

Red Cross Lifeguard Instructor (LGI) role:I am currently a lifeguard instructor through the American Red Cross. In this, I am able to certify guards for pools, waterfronts (lake, pool) and waterparks. I have trained over 1000 lifeguards in my tenure, and am proud to share water safety values with these students. It is thrilling to empower students to pursue an opportunity to help others around the waterfront.

Nam Nguyen, Private Swim Instructor & Lifeguard

Houston

I have been teaching swim lessons for about 4 summers. I specialize in freestyle and breaststroke. Swimming is a sport that I love to do, and teaching it to others allows me to spread my knowledge and experience. I have also been swimming competitively for over 13 years.

I have been lifeguarding for the past 5 summers and also at the University of Houston this past school year. I lifeguard because it gives me the chance to prevent water-related accidents and promote water safety. I have continued to lifeguard through all these years because of the people I have met on the job.

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.

Sydney Campbell, Private Swim Instructor and Lifeguard

College Station and Houston

I’ve been a competitive swimmer since I was 5 years old, so naturally I became a lifeguard for the past 6 years and swim instructor for the past 2 years, to pass on my joy of swimming to others. I specialize in freestyle and backstroke first and then if conditions allow, I also can teach breaststroke and butterfly. Growing up on swim team I learned many drills to perfect my strokes. I enjoy revealing my knowledge to other swimmers to help them get the right quality stroke they desire. My favorite part about swim instructing is watching my students become comfortable and independent in the water. Everyone should get the chance to learn to swim!

Creating a fun and safe environment in and around the pool is my goal. A swimmer with a smile is my heart’s fulfillment. Fun fact about me: I’ve swam in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

I serve the College Station & Houston communities & Bryan, among others
