Before joining Big Blue Swim School, I managed a swim facility and program for a nonprofit organization.
My great-grandmother has had the greatest impact on my life. She is loyal and always acts out of love and kindness to others. She’s the strongest woman I’ve ever known and is near and dear to my heart.
