Swimming has always been a huge part of my life. I first learnt to swim when I was 4 and since then have trained with York City Baths Club and New Earswick Swimming Club, where I became 'Girls Captain.' I always loved the thrill of galas and enjoyed competing regularly at County and Regional championships. I continued to swim when I moved to university where I was part of a very successful Lifesaving team at Loughborough University. As part of this I was lucky enough to compete at the RLSS National Championships at the Olympic Pool in London and achieve World Championship Qualifying Times. I began swimming teaching aged 14 when I started volunteering at my club. Since then I have worked for several swim schools and clubs. I am currently an ASA Level 2 Swimming Teacher.

I am currently completing a Masters Degree at the University of York and hope to pursue a career in Educational or Clinical Psychology.

I believe the key to successful swimming is a strong foundation of basic aquatic skills which can later be built upon to increase speed and stamina. I aim to deliver these skills in a fun and enjoyable way and help every child to maximise their potential.
