I was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana and moved to Colorado in July 2020! I am a special education teacher in Denver Public Schools for kindergarten through 5th graders. I started swimming when I was 8 years old and swam club swimming through high school. My favorite events to swim were the butterfly and distance freestyle! I started teaching swimming lessons my freshman year of high school which then developed into a love of coaching. I have been an assistant coach and head coach in summer leagues in Indianapolis as well as an assistant coach at the high school level. I am currently one of the age group coaches for the Colorado Athletic Club Stingrays. This will be my 3rd with the Wahoos and I am so excited to be a part of the Wahoos again this summer!
