Meet The Team
The swimming pool was pretty much my babysitter growing up. I spent endless hours fooling around in the pool and tormenting the lifeguards. So, naturally it made sense to become one myself.
I started lifeguarding at 16 and shortly after began teaching swimming. I worked at the Derrick club while in University, which allowed me the opportunity to hone my teaching skills and focus in on the finite and tedious details of swimming. With countless hours in the water and close to 10 years experience I’ve become proficient at teaching all ages and skill levels.
I have since graduated University and work as a Registered Nurse in Critical Care but choose to continue coaching because I love it. Its hard to describe, but that moment when things start to click for a student brings me such tremendous joy, I’d have a hard time living without it.
Hello! My name is Andrea and I am currently in my third year of Education at the University of Alberta. I have taught swimming lessons as well as water safety for 5 years and have experience teaching people of all ages and skill levels. I also have experience working with children who have both physical and developmental disabilities.
I truly enjoy seeing my students develop their skills and techniques in the water. I get extremely excited when they exceed my expectations, overcome their fears and challenge themselves. I have always loved the water and I am thrilled for the opportunity to inspire others to feel the same!
