Emily Pasch is our awesome General Manager at Big Blue Swim School Noblesville.

We encourage you to give it a read, and say hi to Emily next time you see her at the pool!
What is your background?
I grew up on the southwest side of Indianapolis and I currently live south of the city in Martinsville, Indiana. I attended the Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo in Gainesville, Florida for my Associate's in Zoo Animal Technology. I later attended Purdue University Global for my Bachelor's in Early Childhood Administration.
Before Big Blue Swim School, I taught private swim lessons in Nebraska, where I specialized in teaching children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I used to be a zookeeper as well. Throughout my career, I worked with over 100 species. Some of my favorites were rough-toothed dolphins, sea lions, cheetahs, and giant anteaters. I now have my own little zoo at home with two dogs, two cats, and a hedgehog.
Why are you passionate about Big Blue Swim School?
Water safety and drowning prevention in addition to helping children become safer around water are two things I am passionate about. I also love the positive and motivational atmosphere of Big Blue. We make teamwork happen. No job is too big or too small for anyone and we all pitch in to help.
