Why a Lifeguard at my age? I was teaching water fitness and I asked myself would I be able to respond to a water emergency? No. I became certified within 3 months.

This will be my 4th summer as a Swim Instructor! I previously instructed at Burlingame Aquatics Club, where I taught both kids aging from 6 months to 16-17 years old and adults! I have worked with all levels of swim experience, so I am well-versed in how to foster the best learning environment and how to find the best approach to teach with–with all different types and levels of swimmers! I swam competitively for 5 years (100 backstroke is my favorite!), so I make sure to always teach the proper technique and with the goal of getting my students to where they would have the proper technique for that kind of swimming if they ever wanted to join a team. I value patience, positive reinforcement, and goal-setting! I love to see that ah-ha moment when one of my students finally succeeds in a particularly hard area–that big smile is why I love to teach! I hope to work with you or your children soon and see those big smiles!

This will be my 4th summer working as a lifeguard both extensively in the Bay Area and in New York City. Previously, I have worked at Burlingame Aquatics Club both as a lifeguard, head lifeguard, camp counselor, and swim instructor. I just finished my first year at NYU, where I guarded as well.

I seek to maintain safety while promoting fun and learning both in the pool and on deck, and I strive to be a positive and reassuring presence for both the kids and for the parents!
