I have been a certified ISR instructor for 10 years and have taught over 500 babies and children how to save their own lives through self-rescue swim lessons.
Growing up around the ocean I have developed a great love for the water and all the enjoyment that a family can have with it. I love swimming, fishing, surfing, and scuba diving.
I also understand the extreme danger that the many bodies of water California and Florida, including the ocean, bays, rivers and pools can be for infants and children. Drowning is the #1 cause of accidental death in California and Florida for infants and young children. These statistics are alarming, but fortunately drowning is a preventable tragedy. This is a constant driving force motivating me to teach children so that they have a chance at survival in the water if they do enter on their own.
I have a BS in Marine Biology from Florida Atlantic University and I previously taught science and math to 4-12 grade before becoming an ISR instructor. I am a certified Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) instructor, am certified in Infant/Child and Adult CPR, AED and First Aid, a certified Biology teacher and a certified Pre-Postnatal Exercise Specialist. I also have an extensive knowledge of behavioral science.
Watching children and helping them to become competent in their skills in the water is so important to me. It is not only my career but my PASSION.
I am excited to raise awareness about drowning prevention. I look forward to providing the community with safe and effective self-rescue swim lessons for infants and children. This summer, 2018, I will be providing lessons in Toronto, Canada and Southampton, NY. I will resume teaching lessons in South Florida in September 2018. Contact me today to schedule lessons for your little one!
