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!
