Experience

I completed my Austswim certificate way back in 1994 and got my first job teaching swimming in tropical Cairns. Since then I have worked in various pools and locations and have spent some time working with ‘Special Olympic’ swimmers.

What do you love about Learn to Swim?

I really enjoy helping little people overcome their fear of the water, and watching them progress with their swimming. I get great satisfaction when I see the swimmer look, listen and learn during the lesson and come out of the water, happy and confident.

A tip for your first lesson.

My tip for a parent whose child is due for their first lesson is to have a fun time playing in the water together (possibly the day before) and watch a group lesson afterwards.

Favourite place to swim?

My favourite place to swim, surf and paddle is Avoca Beach. What a way to start the day!
